About

This event has been canceled thru April 30th.

Good as Gold: Fashioning Senegalese Women is the first major exhibition of Senegalese gold jewelry to focus on the history of Senegals gold, from past to present and the beauty and complexity of the way Senegalese women use ornament and fashion to present themselves. A key theme is the Senegalese concept of sase (a Wolof word for dressing up or looking and feeling good). Good as Gold explores how a woman in a city like Dakar might use a piece of gold jewelry to build a carefully tailored, elegant fashion ensemble.
