Bad Hair Day investigates the wild and wonderful ways of hair through painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and video.
A 'bad hair day', according to the Compact Oxford English Dictionary, is a day on which everything goes wrong.
This exhibition investigates the wild and unpredictable ways of hair – and human behaviour – through historical and contemporary painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and video.
From the satirical to the surreal, and through a lively array of the bearded, bald or bewigged, it also introduces audiences to a fascinating range of artists' works, and to ideas as diverse as the styles portrayed.
Mixing inspiration, observation and imagination, Bad Hair Day is shaped with younger audiences in mind.
