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.

Discover FACE X Horniman – Hair: Untold Hair Stories, an online exhibition exploring personal narratives attached to hair from Black, Brown and Asian perspectives within the UK. The exhibition is in two parts, with a student space and an academic space.

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