Beyond Fashion – National Gallery – 30/09/2018 – 15/01/2019

ngj-beyondfashion-emailer-invite-ver3 We are happy and honored to be part of this exhibition at the National Gallery in Kingston (Jamaica).

With the works of Marvin Bartley, Kereina Chang-Fatt, The Girl and The Magpie, Jessica Ogden, Ebony G. Patterson, Alfredo Piola, Ayana Rivière, Peter Dean Rickards, Jasmine Thomas-Girvan, Phillip Thomas, Yasmin Spiro, Seymour Lewis and Cosmo Whyte.

Beyond Fashion examines the works of artists who have incorporated elements of fashion and it’s creation into their practice. It explores the capacity for fashion themed art making to delve into topics of the personal and the political, as well as providing a vehicle for experimentation and expression that goes beyond everyday fashion. Beyond Fashion includes the works of artists that have experience in fashion design, fashion photography and jewellery making.

IMG_0022 lThe Girl and the Magpie presents 2 sets of works: previously unshown pieces from the Hair Project and 5 news pieces from the Fragile Collection.
The first set of work, the Hair Project, questions what hair has to say about our societies, gender conceptions, culture, politics, religion.
The second set draws attention to the beauty and fragility of nature, and to the urgency to protect it, through everyday action.

Hairproject: the Blog, now online



A blog dedicated to the Hair Project, with all the stories collected about hair (in EN) and the documents (books, art work, info, references, web links,…) collected around the same theme of hair during the process of creation of the Hair Jewels.

Documents and stories are tagged according to topic (sociology, economy, religion, gender, politics, history, culture, gender, symbolism,… ), kind of documents (films, documentaries, books, music, other artistic works using hair), kind of hairstyle (dreadlocks, blond, black hair, short,…. ) and geographic area (including community).

The Hair Project consists of 3 interacting parts: the pieces of wearable jewellery  including hair, the stories and the blog

You can still participate in writing us your Hair Story or sharing any info or document about this topic, on the blog or here
