Nail salon and artist talk photos


Jennifer Ling Datchuk will discuss the ways that hair and nail salons are sites for conversations, learning, and camaraderie when dealing with issues of gender, identity, and power in her work. During these times of self-care, everyone needs some “money honey” nails to carry the affirmations and conversations of the salon into everyday life. After this talk, give yourself permission to be pampered by Little Luxuries Nail Lounge and get some custom nail decals in blue and white with patterns of the Venus of Willendorf, peaches, uteruses, and more – because girl, you can.

Two artists will be available from Little Luxuries Nail Lounge during the event to polish nails and apply decals by Jennifer Ling Datchuk. We’ll do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible. If we don’t get to you this evening, we encourage you to make an appointment at the salon.

Plus, you'll get a first look at an exhibition of Datchuk’s porcelain work that explores questions of identity and shared values in Chinese and American culture and the emotive power of domestic objects.

What's Jennifer listening to?
