In Africa, la coiffure or “hairdressing” is both an art and a vocation that characterizes ethnicity and individuality. This exhibition featured a private collection of hairdressers' commissioned hand-painted “hair signs,” African sculpture from the permanent collection, as well as a work by Carrie Mae Weems that states "Went Looking for Africa and found it tightly woven in a woman's hair.” This was part of KAM's Featured Works Series (XV).
