First International Multimedia Exhibition on Jean Paul Gaultier Rocks the Museum World. First coming to MONTREAL then Dallas, and San Francisco.
This is organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) and beginning June 17. In this exhibition you will be able to see:
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Side Walk to the Catwalk it will be revealed how Gaultier’s renowned multicultural, gender-bending aesthetic has succeeded in capturing the mood of the times. Marking the 35th anniversary of the designer’s own label, the multimedia exhibition features roughly 120 brash and bold haute couture (80%) and ready-to-wear garments and accessories for men and women spanning from 1976 to 2010.
How exciting is this everyone? I personally can’t wait for June 17th but let me tell you a little more about this exhibition.
Original and never-before-seen photographs by leading contemporary artists and photographers including Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Pierre & Gilles, and David LaChapelle will further bring to light Gaultier’s eclectic, multidisciplinary scope of inspiration and extraordinary creative vision.
His legendary collaborations with today’s leading pop/rock stars, filmmakers, and choreographer will also be revealed through excerpts and film stills from music videos, concerts, runway shows, dance performances, and TV shows basically you will be able to see anything and everything that has to do with Gaultier.
Stage outfits worn by Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Kylie Minogue, and costumes for films (Pedro Almodóvar’s Bad Education), original sketches for film costumes for Peter Greenaway (The Cook, the Thief, his Wife, and her Lover), and Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) are but some of the many eye-popping ensembles on view that will illustrate Gaultier’s special connections with the worlds of art, music, film, and dance and let’s not forget FASHION!
JP Gaultier you are truly as fashion guru.
Lots of Love To You!!!!
