Exploring the rich theme of modern beauty through the prisms of ageing, natural Afro hair, regional glamour, class and gender, Kathryn Ferguson will introduce her exclusive short films, made in association with Selfridges for The Beauty Project. To introduce the event, Jennifer McCarey will muse upon the question “Finding yourself in the midst of political turmoil and protest, what is the role of lipstick?”
