The Brooklyn Museum is the only East Coast venue for The
Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk
to the Catwalk, the first international exhibition from
October 25th,2013 to February 23rd, 2014.
This multimedia exhibition is organized around seven themes
tracing the influences on Gaultier’s development,from the
streets of Paris to the cinema, since he emerged as a designer
in the 1970s. It features approximately 140 haute couture and
prêt-à-porter ensembles, from the designer’s earliest to his
most recent collections, many of which are displayed on custom
mannequins with interactive faces created by high-definition
audiovisual projections. Accessories, sketches,stage costumes,
excerpts from films, and documentation of runway shows,
concerts, and dance performances, as well as photographs by
fashion photographers and contemporary artists who stepped
into Gaultier’s world, explore how his avant-garde designs
challenge societal, gender, and aesthetic codes in unexpected ways.
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk
to the Catwalk is organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine
Arts, in collaboration with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier, Paris.
The exhibition is curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot of the MMFA.
The Brooklyn presentation is coordinated by Lisa Small,
Curator of Exhibitions, Brooklyn Museum.
