Hen’s Teeth announces HONEY DIJON: Black Girl Magic with Marina Esmeraldo, launching in London on 5th March 2020, before returning to Hen’s Teeth’s Dublin 8 gallery for a month-long exhibit from 6pm, Thursday, 12 March.
Black Girl Magic celebrates six black female music icons chosen by artist and DJ Honey Dijon in bright and bold, large-scale neons, designed by Brazilian artist and long-time Hen’s Teeth collaborator Marina Esmeraldo.
Speaking about the concept for the show, Greg Spring, creative director at Hen’s Teeth, said: “This is Hen’s Teeth’s first big international show and the first in a series of planned exhibits that will see us creating shows with musicians and artists who have never curated shows before. To be doing it with Honey Dijon, an icon in her own right, who has collaborated with COMME des GARÇONS and Dior in the past year and now Hen’s Teeth, is an unbelievable honour.”
