Hair Pieces explores the evocative and complex significance of hair in contemporary culture through a selection of recent Australian and international works of art.

For millennia hair has been a resonant and compelling site of meaning transmitting ideas about gender mythology status and power the body psychology feminism and notions of beauty.

At once radiant and repellent and often richly symbolic it has always assumed a particular importance in relation to the self history and society.

This exhibition examines the myriad ways in which artists utilise hair to investigate and conjure generative and even magical possibilities encompassing growth empowerment and transformation.
