Work by Hayley Millar Baker features in Heide Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition, Hair Pieces.

The exhibition explores the evocative and complex significance of hair in contemporary culture through a selection of recent Australian and international works of art.

For millennia hair has been a resonant and compelling site of meaning, transmitting ideas about gender, mythology, status and power, the body, psychology, feminism and notions of beauty.  At once radiant and repellent, and often richly symbolic, it has always assumed a particular importance in relation to the self, history and society.
