The Hair Appointment (Toronto)

Sunday School took a different approach for Toronto. We decided to collaborate with talented musician, Sydanie, as we gave her the platform to express herself as a mother to Kifaaya (seen below). In alignment with the Hair Appointment concept, Sydanie developed a freestyle that offered her translation on black hair, black beauty, and the climate we live in.

Below are highlights from the creative project.

The Hair Appointment (New York)

In collaboration with Okay Africa, Sunday School curated an interactive gallery installation in Brooklyn New York. The activation was created in an effort to connect with creatives while celebrating the impact of our most recent project, “The Hair Appointment” which has caught international attention over the last few months. The installation included a highly-detailed hair salon set, a gallery display, and over 300 people! Sunday School used this opportunity to transform a digital body of work into a physical installation for viewers to engage with.

Below, are a some highlight moments from the gallery experience.

The Hair Appointment (Oakland)

Following the success of the gallery exhibit in New York, Sunday School had teamed up with Visual Supply Company (VSCo) in Oakland, to offer a similar experience. The Micro Gallery experience was welcomed by over 400+ people on opening night, and it featured a collection of our best photographs from the series. The exhibit was an opportunity to connect with our audience in California, while expressing the process taken to create such a masterpiece. The exhibit was open for viewing at the VSCO Headquarters until June 2019.
