About the exibition:
Join the maverick Materials Library for an experimental and experiential insight into the art and science of hair and its connection to the human body, culture and society. Come and enjoy an evening of specially created hands-on activities in the 'Medicine Man' and 'Medicine Now' galleries, as well as talks from hair specialists. Guests will have the opportunity to reacquaint themselves with the materiality of hair and to explore our obsession with it through a series of encounters, including spinning, knitting, shaving, styling, waxing and microscopic analysis. Cut, shave, wax and wear hair with experts such as wig makers, barbers, hair stylists, chemists, theatrical make-up artists and canine coiffeurs. Come with your own exciting hairstyle, beard or moustache to show off - or simply try one out while you are here. This event has been produced by Materials Library.
