Voices of Fashion: Black couture, beauty & styles
June 5, 2021 – August 15, 2021
A major new fashion exhibition entitled Voices of Fashion: Black Couture, Beauty and Styles is set to open at the Centraal Museum. The show will be the first ever staged by an art museum in the Netherlands to query the white gaze as the default vantage point from which to present, wear, and collect fashion. Underpinning the exhibition are years of research by black, brown and white people that show that the fashion world and our relationship with it continue to be shaped by the legacies of European colonialism. Voices of Fashion takes you on a little told story of fashion, with a stunning exhibition design by Afaina de Jong of AFARAI.
