Brooklyn based hyper-realistic artist, Cj Hendry’s eighth solo show, Blonde will exhibit large-scale, meticulous pencil drawings of multicoloured wigs in a two-part presentation format at Brookfield Place.

Hinged on Hendry’s fascination with the transformative nature of wigs, Blonde sets out to articulate the intricacies of the physical and emotional relationship between a wig and its wearer, whether it be necessity, adornment, costume, or armour.

The show itself, initiates in a pop-up chocolate shop, stocked with custom Blonde x Tony’s Chocolonely’s chocolate bars in aptly name hair colors and styles, created by Hendry exclusively for the three-day exhibition. Blonde further extends Hendry’s signature of colliding mediums, leading guests through a speakeasy secret door to reveal a retro-kitsch barber shop, where visitors are encouraged to don one of the 5000 wigs in 200 styles—a take home, keepsake. By donning wigs, guests will undergo their own metamorphose, as they contemplate the deeper meaning behind the art works.

The exhibition is free to the public and 100% of Blonde x Tony’s Chocolonely’s sales will be donated to the Ali Forney Center, an organization that supports LGBTQ+ youth in NYC.
