Curated by Mark Sloan, “Hair on Fire” represents six contemporary artists who explore the diverse history of human hair through their art—from its significance in mythology, cultural anthropology, fashion, and folklore, to its rich metaphorical possibilities. Each artist creates works that are either made of, incorporate, or relate to the hirsute. Artists featured are Caryl Burtner, Sonya Clark, Talia Greene, Ruth Marten, Althea Murphy-Price, and Loren Schwerd. May 2009.
