Jo's Mo Show

Women get to have skirts and tights and make up and stuff, but men? We get facial hair (chest swells with pride, looks to the horizon, sees an eagle, and sighs).

Jo's Mo Show (with beards) at Canberra's National Portrait Gallery documents our rich, hairy tradition with images from the late 1700s onwards.

Not only is it an amazing cross-section of pictures of fuzzy guys, the show goes on to explain how styles like The Brougham and The Demon were popular in their respective eras due to social and political changes. You have until April 1 to learn mo about your mo, bro.
