The 39th Annual Black Doll Show, “Psychedollia” showcases a movement in joy, through Black life, music, art, fashion and popular culture.
The exhibition cites soul and funk as a source of inspiration while also referencing flower power genres of the 1990’s hip hop and house scenes, contemporary practices of futurism and transgression through delight and bliss. Psychedollia is a celebration of the monumental and small, ordinary and extraordinary events that depict Black life in all its facets. This year’s theme is a deep exploration of cultural imagery as depicted through the beauty and diversity of dolls.
It seeks to positively reshape the dialogue on Black life & identity as portrayed in media and dominant society by highlighting Black is Beautiful, natural hair, counter culture, self-empowerment, Black liberation and agency.
