Bristle: Hair and Hegemony opening Saturday 8 July
Bristle: Hair and Hegemony opening Saturday 8 JulyBristle: hair and hegemony draws on the rich scientific, literary, political and aesthetic contexts in which hair plays a central role. It brings together a range of artworks and objects from the 17th century to the contemporary moment, and from diverse ethnic and cultural contexts. It features work by historic and contemporary artists including Albrecht Dürer, William Hogarth, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Matthew and Mary Darly, Hashiguchi Goyo, James Barry, Abigail O’Brien, Joanne Procter, Stephen Lau, David Hockney, Bharti Parmar, Alice Maher and Helen Chadwick.

In addition to commissioning new work and borrowing a range of contemporary art from emerging and established artists, the exhibition presents art from major public collections, the National Gallery of Ireland, Chester Beatty Library, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane, the British Council Collection, the Arts Council of Ireland and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland as well as Drogheda Municipal Art Collection and private collections. These wide-ranging examples, some familiar, many not shown before, offer a sense of the extent of representations and meanings given to hair in visual art and material culture over the centuries.
