Femme de Fleur is a celebration of melanated beauty, strength and grace in women – literally the goddess in feminine energy. We’ll be showcasing pieces of this collection at Harbourfront Centre in our new outdoor exhibit: Where She Went, We Thrived.

About Where She Went, We Thrived

Where She Went, We Thrived explores the magic and tenacity of Black womanhood. They have shaped the world we know today, and this exhibit pays tribute to the tools, strategies and traditions our ancestors wielded for their survival—enabling future generations to succeed. 

Presented in partnership with Harbourfront Centre, three contemporary artists, Apanaki Temitayo M, Christine Nnawuchi, and Yasin Osman, examine the contributions of Black women in our communities through the dynamic presentation of textile, porcelain ceramics and photography.

This exhibition is outdoors, and part of Kuumba: Harbourfront Centre annual Black History Month Exhibit. The work will be on display until April 11, 2021 at 235 Queens Quay East.
