"Hair Stories"
2000-07-14 until 2000-09-03
Minneapolis Institute of Arts

This exhibition and event series will present the work of four visual artists, three writers, and one art historian to explore the personal, cultural, and mythological significance of hair.

This exhibition encompasses mixed media work by Diane Katsiaficas, paintings by nancy Robinson, mixed media work and hand made paper by Erica Spitzer Rasmussen and a video installation by Mara Zoltners. Text and readings by Paulette Alden Bates, Valerie Miner and Mary Francois Rockcastle are also included.Michasel Stoughton will curate a presentation of hair weaving from private Minnesota collections. He will also contribute an essay on the hisotical use of hair in art and ornament.

Because everyone has personal associations with hair, the gallery design will provide opportunities for museum visitors to contribute to a collaborative work.
