Frash A Dash — an Gallery 44 exhibition by Maisha Marshall-Ende, opening July 12th

What does it mean to be black in Canada? This is the question at the heart of Maisha Marshall-Ende’s show Frash a Dash. The project aims to create a cultural bridge by taking objects that are emblematic of different cultures - the du-rag and an iconic Ethiopian fabric - and combining them in a celebration of those who inhabit the spaces in-between. Through her art, she hopes to broaden the conversation around what it truly means to be a black woman.

Frash A Dash is a joint collaborative effort between Gallery 44 and the Margin of Eras Gallery, to be presented in the Vitrines of Gallery 44.
