Launch Event: Crowns of Confidence by Rachael Young & Richard Houguez

1 Jan, 1970 at 12:00 am - 22 Nov, 2014 at 12:00 am

Performance artist Rachael Young and self-taught hairdresser Richard Houguez will set up a hairstyling laboratory in NAE’s pop-up hair salon. Here, working with a range of voluntary participants, they will use the process of hairstyling to explore the cultural significance of hair and the role persona plays in hairdressing.

The artists’ hair salon workshops will take place 8, 9, 15 and 16 November, 10am–5pm. Participants will reflect on the significance of their current styling choices and create a hairstyle that reflects their own Crown of Confidence. Want to get involved? Contact [email protected].

The results of the Crowns of Confidence research project will be shared in the pop-up salon from 22 November.

Young and Houguez’s project at NAE builds on their ongoing Intersections commission with Primary, Nottingham.
