Hair Stories Exhibition Reception
August 6, 2021 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us in celebrating the Hair Stories exhibiting artists!
Hair Stories brings together a diverse group of artists whose work focuses on hair or uses hair as a medium to explore the important roles hair plays in culture, religion, politics, ritual, and identity, throughout history and in the present day. From hair jewelry and lockets that fetishize hair to photographs, sculptures, and video works that celebrate hair, this show examines the ways in which hair functions as a complex set of codes and as the loaded raw material for artistic expression.

Johnson, Nneka Kai, Vivian Keulards, Wangui Maina, Ana Mendieta, Patricia Miranda, Zanele Muholi, J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere, Rachel Portesi, Shahzia Sikander, Lorna Simpson, Gu Wenda, Nafis M.
