J.D. OKHAI OJEIKERE: HAIRSTYLES AND HEADDRESSES

MAIN GALLERY

LAUNCH EVENT: 26 SEPTEMBER 2014, 6PM - 9PM

New Art Exchange, Nottingham, presents Nigerian photographer J.D Okhai Ojeikere's prolific collection of ornate hairstyles and headdresses. The elaborately sculpted hair of female African models is captured in meticulous detail through beautifully composed black and white photography. The series simultaneously celebrates hairstyling as a transient artwork and forms an extensive visual archive reflecting Nigerian cultural traditions.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest 20th century African photographers, Ojeikere earned international acclaim through his Hairstyle series; a personal project begun in 1968, which grew to encompass 1,000 photographs spanning 40 years. In recognition of the recently deceased artist, this Hayward Touring exhibition from Southbank Centre is the first UK exhibition of the renowned artist's work.

  • Any age

  • 8 November 2014 — 11 January 2015 *on now

Lost memories and histories are captured in this new media installation by British artist Said Adrus. At the centre of this exhibition is the forgotten contribution of South Asian soldiers during the First World War, a subject matter that Adrus has been working on over the past eight years. Coinciding with the WWI centenary, the exhibition pays homage to this lost chapter in history. Said Adrus's work explores global issues about the diaspora communities and the notion of Britishness in contemporary society.

Talk: During the exhibition launch, Adrus will be joined by Amna Malik to discuss the wider research around this project. Amna Malik is Senior Lecturer in Art History and Theory, at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. Arrive by 7pm to join this free session.
