Group Show
Hair On Fire



This group exhibition, curated by Mark Sloan, explores the rich and diverse history of human hair—from its importance in mythology, cultural anthropology, fashion, and folklore, to its metaphorical possibilities. Each artist creates works that are either made of hair, or relate to the subject.
