Beyond Beauty: The Ideal Form
Beyond Beauty: the ideal form is an exhibition curated by Lewis Derogene hosted by the Mad Lab team.
This exhibition was hosted from October 10, 2020 to October 17, 2020 at Mad Lab 22 Leonard St, Norwalk, CT 06851.
This exhibition was a collection of illustrative designs by two Black women, Lewis Derogene and Scheba Derogene, depicting all BIPOC women as ideal in their normality. There was a variety of illustrations with different types of women from their skin to hair to features and more.
Beyond Beauty: the ideal form was a celebration of all BIPOC women in all of their splendor and beauty.
With the different appearances that they all uniquely have, they break down the Eurocentric beauty standards by accepting who and what they are as well as standing strong for their choices of being unapologetically them.
"We are beyond beauty, we are beyond the ideal form."
All BIPOC women are beyond beautiful, and this exhibition is here to share that with you.
