TD Now & Then 2014: Elusive Icons – Black Fashion Dolls 1968 – 2013

Date & Time

Thu, Feb 20 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


The Elusive Icons exhibition is a chronological visual illustration and comparison of Black fashion dolls over the past 46 years to the present. The collection of over 60 dolls will show the chronological progression of representation, from one doll to the multiple dolls with different skin tones and facial features presently available. In this exhibit I will attempt to trace the development of a multi-dimensional representation and evolution of Blackness.

The dolls exhibited are from doll collectors across Canada.. The collection will, create an opportunity to start a dialogue that empowers Black women. These discussions will range from representations that many have never known or have ever seen before. Questions of race and identity are inherent in the collection of these Elusive Icons The exhibition will be held in two other locations: School, Women’s Health in Women’s Hands- – a health center catering to Black Women and Women of Color, and the Brockton Collective gallery space
