Special Event: HAIR CLUB Presents: The HAIR SALON
Monday, July 23, 2018, 6pm
Please join HAIR CLUB for a free-flowing discussion around HAIR and the hairy publications that were contributed to Up like a sun, down like a pancake. HAIR CLUB is an interdisciplinary research-based initiative whose work is centered around the multi-valent topic of HAIR in culture. Co-founded by Suzanne Gold, Kelly Lloyd, and Michal Lynn Shumate, HAIR CLUB is a platform for discussion, dialogue, research, exhibition, and production that has received grants from the Shapiro Center for Collaborative Research and the Propeller Fund in Chicago, IL, and has taught courses on HAIR at Ox-bow School of Art in Michigan, and Humboldt University of Berlin in Germany. The HAIR SALON is a place to tease out a discussion of what it means to have hair in the world, to share hair memories, and to find patterns in how hair is cropping up in culture. We look forward to hearing your hair stories!
