If The Head Fits, Wear It is an anthology publication examining the intersection of the Grateful Dead and contemporary art. This project united three art practitioners working together for the first time: Elizabeth Cline, Mark A. Rodriguez, and Matt Siegle. Coming from backgrounds such as opera, sculpture, and performance, the editors shared working methodologies to collaboratively edit and shape the concept of the book.
If The Head Fits, Wear It brings together a mix of California artists, writers, and organizers to examine and highlight the proximity between these two subcultures, and in doing so forges new pathways for contemporary practices to engage the genre-defining expression inherent within Deadhead culture.
Includes contributions by Katie Bachler, Elizabeth Cline, Katy Cowan, Nikki Darling, Eli Diner, Karl Erickson, Marc Herbst, Robby Herbst, Stuart Krimko, Anna Mayer, Cass McCombs & Katherine Pickard, Corrina Peipon, Mark A. Rodriguez, Tom Stack, Matt Siegle, Sticker Dude, Robert G. Weiner, and Kate Wolf.
