Hair Matters (exhibition)
An exhibition that examines the social and cultural symbolism of hair in the 21st century. From the ballroom drag scene in New York City, to the anarchic rebellion against heteronormativity - hair has always been a significant placeholder for the relation of the queer body and space. This exhibition features work by six young, queer artists who explore the personal and political significance of hair and body hair as incredibly charged symbols of identity. The public interventions include photo manipulations, work with textiles, collage material, graphic design, ephemera and audio material.
Hair Matters was an exhibition that I curated in collaboration with queer art space vFd in November 2018. The exhibition was comprised of a series of public art interventions around Dalston, East London. The exhibition included works by Travis Alabanza, Roma Havers, Sadé Mica, Angel Rose, Alex Noble and Chaz Howkins.
