Hair and wigs carry cultural and political weight in Black culture, rendering them powerful tools for self-representation. Derrick Adams: LOOKS features nine monumental paintings of wigs on mannequin heads from the artist’s recent Style Variations series.

Derrick Adams: LOOKS was jointly organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and Cleveland Clinic, marking the centennial of Cleveland Clinic.
