Hair is extraordinary. It can tell us stories, is entangled with expectations and is a fibre with a range of unexpected possibilities.

Join us for a series of free exhibitions exploring the stories of Hair – as a material, as a cultural signifier, and as something fun. What does our hair say about us?

From cutting edge photography and immersive installations to spoken word and filmmaking, see Hair examined in a multitude of ways across the Horniman.

Featuring work from both renowned and emerging artists, you won’t want to miss the hair season.
