The FED Beauty Salon

In 2012 the FED BEAUTY SALON was hosted by Ictus Gallery, a storefront in the Mission, where artists offered experimental beauty services to confront inequity and suffering. The experimental and subversive range of beauty services offered by the artists were developed to expose, discuss, and communally exorcise inner damage caused by the financialization of everything– and while nothing was free, nothing costed money. Resident Beauticians helped clients conceptualize, vocalize, externalize ‘how they got screwed’ in a free market, offering the opportunity for clients to unbury and beautify suffering that is physical, mental, or emotional. Since its original home at Ictus Gallery, it has also been opened on campus at Sacred Heart High School.
