Janine Antoni in "Hair Pieces"
Janine Antoni in "Hair Pieces" - Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne, Australia - Highlights - Luhring Augustine

Janine Antoni's Loving Care is included in Hair Pieces, a group exhibition opening at the Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne, Australia on May 6, 2024. 

Hair Pieces 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. This exhibition examines the myriad ways in which artists utilise hair to investigate and conjure generative and even magical possibilities encompassing growth, empowerment and transformation.
