Hair, There, and Everywhere

>>“Hair has no fixed meaning,” said Yves Le Fur, the exhibition’s curator. “It can show the norm and the anti-establishment, conformity and anti-conformity, seduction and repulsion, freedom and repression. It’s the only human material that can be shaped and distorted as you wish.”<< – NYTimes review of “The Art of Hair: Frivolities and Trophies” at the Musée du Quai Branly.
