Never The Same

Chicago artist and activist Daniel Tucker and Art Historian Rebecca Zorach expand a project entitled Never the Same which, since 2010, has sought to archive and document the history of Chicago’s rich storehouse of politically and socially engaged art practices. 

The Quieto Pelo! (Mappy Hair!) project (Liliana Angulo Cortes with Sydney Stoudmire), the Illinois Association of Hair Braiders, and the United African Organization are organized a summit on braiding and natural hair styling practices in African-descent communities in the Chicago area.  The summit took place at the Gray Center Lab on October 20, 2013.
