Arts Council funding for Studio 3 exhibition

Dr Eleen Deprez, curator of the Studio 3 Gallery, has won an Arts Council grant for £14,000 for the forthcoming exhibition Hair: Textures of Belonging.

Hair: Textures of Belonging will explore the gendered and racial aesthetics of hair as signifier of black and gendered identity. The exhibition will celebrate the work of these artists and the diversity of black culture, and to promote diverse representations of beauty beyond the white aesthetic. The impact of the exhibition will be amplified by a day of performance and workshops at the Gulbenkian Theatre on campus.

The exhibition will feature (amongst others) Marina Abramovic, Zhu Tian, Sonia BoDyce, Yuni Kim Lang, and Sonya Clark.

The exhibition will run from 4 March until 4 April 2020.
