Dallas based artist Chesley Antoinette presents an Exhibition of fashion photography and wearable sculptural turbans from the historical period of the 18th Century. Tignon pronounce [tēyôN] is a French word that can mean cloth or handkerchief and is used to reference the headwraps of Creole women. The display will explore a body of work through women of African descent. The Tignon exhibition is intended to create dialogue around the ideas of liberty, private property and government policies that affect individual choices.
