Gallery artists GAVIN HURLEY, LIYEN CHONG and PATRICK POUND all have new or recent work in the exhibition "Bad Hair Day" at the Christchurch Art Gallery from 4 June 2016.
A 'bad hair day', according to the Compact Oxford English Dictionary, is a day on which everything goes wrong. This exhibition investigates the wild and unpredictable ways of hair – and human behaviour – through historical and contemporary painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and video.
From the satirical to the surreal, and through a lively array of the bearded, bald or bewigged, it also introduces audiences to a fascinating range of artists' works, and to ideas as diverse as the styles portrayed.
Mixing inspiration, observation and imagination, "Bad Hair Day" is shaped with audiences of all ages in mind. Also included are recent works Ronnie van Hout and Yvonne Todd as well as a range of more historical works from the gallery collection.
