Rizos Inside Out draws its inspiration from Lo llevamos rizo (We sport it curly), a project by the Cuban artist Susana Pilar that extended itself throughout the XIII Havana Bienal (April 12th-May 12th, 2019). Lo llevamos rizo looked into Cuba’s popular culture beauty canons in order to unhinge them and celebrate natural afro hair, that is, the hairstyles afro, dreads and braids.
To share Lo llevamos rizo’s spirit with the city, we decided to invite its participants to pose for Inside Out and thus ventilate its message of love and acceptance: “be yourself, sport it curly!”
This project was made possible thanks to the collaboration of Susana Pilar and her team and the support of Arte Continua, Galleria Continua Havana’s outpost.
