Set to debut at Ugly Duck in London from April 13th to 14th, this thought-provoking exhibition invites you to delve deep into the captivating world of South West Asian and North African (SWANA) communities.
At the core of “Talking Textures” lies an analogue photo series that transcends mere aesthetics, offering a profound exploration of the diverse textures of hair and the stories they embody. Each photograph serves as a window into the rich tapestry of SWANA heritage, inviting viewers to contemplate the intricate relationship between hair, identity, and belonging.
As you immerse yourself in the exhibition, prepare to embark on a journey of discovery where every image unveils a new layer of meaning and significance. From the coils of tightly curled hair to the flowing locks of natural waves, each texture becomes a testament to the resilience, beauty, and diversity of SWANA culture.
But “Talking Textures” is more than just an exhibition—it’s a celebration of diversity and a catalyst for change. In addition to the captivating visuals, the event promises an array of engaging workshops designed to deepen understanding and spark meaningful dialogue. Explore themes of cultural representation, self-expression, and community empowerment as you participate in interactive sessions that inspire reflection and connection.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a transformative experience that will leave a lasting impact on hearts and minds alike. Join us at Ugly Duck in London Bridge for “Talking Textures,” where beauty, culture, and identity converge in an unforgettable celebration of SWANA heritage.
