Exhibiting Artist Richard Houguez will be in conversation with Creative Producer Roshni Belakavadi to draw parallels between the spaces depicted in the film and barber shops within Hyson Green. The conversation will draw upon the two research-based commissions presented in the main gallery and Houguez's wider artistic practice. For more information on these two commissions, click either here for Ben Harriott's current exhibition, or here for Rachael Young and Richard Houguez's upcoming Crowns of Confidence.
The Fade presents an exclusive window into the lives of four barbers, including Johnny "Cakes" Castellanos; responsible for styling the likes of hip-hop's icons, Jay Z and Pharrell Williams. The observational film seamlessly transports us between Accra, London, New Jersey and Kingston drawing on common themes of identity, business, masculinity and culture.
