THE FASHION WORLD OF JEAN PAUL GAULTIER FROM THE SIDEWALK TO THE CATWALK
BARBICAN CENTER LONDON
April 2014 - 25 August 2014
In the first major exhibition devoted to the celebrated French couturier,
we invite you to explore Jean Paul Gaultier's fashion world. With
his avant-garde fashion creations and cutting-edge designs, Gaultier has
shaped the look of fashion over the last 40 years. His reputation for
witty and daring designs and a ceaseless interest in society, identity and
a beauty borne of difference has earned him a place in fashion history.
Gaultier is fascinated by world cultures and countercultures, conceiving a
new kind of fashion in both the way it is made and worn. Through twists,
transformations, transgressions and reinterpretations, he not only erases
the boundaries between cultures but also the sexes, redefining the idea of
androgyny or subverting fashion codes.
This theatrically-staged exhibition brings together more than 165
cutting-edge couture and ready-to-wear garments including iconic costumes
for film and performance from the early 1970s to the present day. The
infamous conical bra and corsets Madonna wore during her 1990 Blonde
Ambition World Tour are showcased alongside stage costumes designed for Kylie
Minogue as well as pieces created for the films of Pedro Almodóvar,
Gaultier’s rich collaborations with renowned artists and photographers such
as Miles Aldridge, David LaChapelle, Pierre et Gilles,
Peter Lindbergh, Herb Ritts, Stéphane Sednaoui, Cindy
Sherman and Andy Warhol are also shown together with footage of
catwalk presentations, concerts, music videos, films and dance
