    Allready running at the National Portrait Gallery London 15th Feb - 28 May

    Face of Fashion

    Face of Fashion focuses on the portraits of five outstanding fashion photographers from Europe and America: Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Corinne Day, Steven Klein, Paolo Roversi and Mario Sorrenti. It is the first exhibition of its kind, celebrating the innovation and diversity of current fashion portraiture.

    In the contemporary fashion world, models, actors, musicians and designers frequently swap places. The exhibition highlights the relationship between fashion and celebrity and illustrates the extraordinary intimacy that often develops between photographer and subject.

    Great thread idea!

    Until May 7th at the Tate Modern in London (and worth a plane trip to me at least)...Gilbert & George Retrospective:

    [​IMG]

    Gilbert & George place themselves, their thoughts and their feelings at the centre of their art, and almost all of the images they use are gathered within walking distance of their home in London’s East End. Yet their pictures capture a broad human experience, encompassing an astonishing range of emotions and themes, from rural idylls to gritty images of a decaying London; from fantastical brightly-coloured panoramas to raw examinations of humanity stripped bare; from sex advertisements to religious fundamentalism.

    From the beginning, they wanted to communicate beyond the narrow confines of the art world, adopting the slogan ‘Art for All’. As a result they have joined the very small handful of artists to become household names, and their impeccably-dressed figures are instantly recognisable to the general public. Bringing together a selection of pictures that spans their entire 40-year career, it is fitting that Gilbert &George: Major Exhibition is the largest retrospective of any artist to be held at Tate Modern.

    George was born in Devon in 1942. Gilbert was born in Italy in 1943, in a small village in the Dolomites. They met as students on the sculpture course at St Martins School of Art, London, where they exhibited together and soon began to create art together. They adopted the identity of ‘living sculptures’ in both their art and their daily lives, becoming not only creators, but also the art itself.

    They established their reputation in 1969 with THE SINGING SCULPTURE. Standing together on a table, they danced and sang the Flanagan and Allen standard ‘Underneath the Arches’ – a song in which two tramps describe the pleasures of sleeping rough. It was a telling choice, harking back to prewar England and traditions of vaudeville, while also identifying with the fringes of society. Gilbert & George were invited to present THE SINGING SCULPTURE all over the world, sometimes for eight hours at a stretch. Realising, however, that they could reach only a handful of people at a time, they began to create films and pictures that could extend the idea of living sculpture without requiring their physical presence.

    I'm going to London in the summer (in June or July), and have been thinking of going to interesting exhibitions. Personally I am not too interested in the Face of Fashion-exhibition. Do you know any good ones coming up for summer?

    Great thread idea :heart:

    some exhibits in san francisco:

    California College of the Arts at 100: Innovation by Design
    Friday, March 23, 2007 - Sunday, August 26, 2007
    San Francisco Museum of Modern Art


    Encompassing some of the most mesmerizing design objects from the Museum's collection and beyond, this exhibition showcases the innovation and boundless creativity manifested by faculty and alumni of CCA on the occasion of the Bay Area college's 100th anniversary. Recent and contemporary works — ranging from posters to cutlery, books, lighting, and architectural models — demonstrate CCA's commitment to fostering cutting-edge design practices through a distinctive combination of concept and craft. The selection includes designs by Yves Béhar, Thom Faulders, IwamotoScott, Kuth/Ranieri, Jennifer Morla, and Bruce Tomb, among others. Even the exhibition's display system conveys the creative vision fostered by CCA. An adjacent presentation, California College of the Arts at 100: Fertile Ground, which features a selection of award-winning print materials and buildings designed for CCA, complements the installation.

    Nan Kempner: American Chic
    June 16, 2007 — November 11, 2007
    deYoung Museum, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco


    San Francisco native Mrs. Thomas Kempner (1930–2005) was an icon of American style, and over five decades she acquired thousands of articles of clothing and accessories, all reflecting her flawless taste and personal expression. This exhibition includes more than 60 ensembles created by Yves Saint Laurent, Madame Grès, Christian Lacroix, Valentino, and others. It shows not only Kempner’s impeccable eye when it came to selecting pieces for her personal wardrobe but also the individualistic approach she brought to coordinating them. This exhibition originated at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and is customized for San Francisco with objects from the collections of both the Met and the Fine Arts Museums. Included are pieces from Mrs. Kempner’s 1985 gift to FAMSF, as well as Mr. Thomas Kempner’s recent gift to the Museums.

    She was known for effortlessly recombining elements without regard for designer provenance. Although she favored French designers, she brought to haute couture the informal strategies of American sportswear. Nan Kempner wore couture as comfortably as she would a pair of blue jeans, which she loved. This American approach was heightened by her naturalness, her athleticism, and her wish to dress comfortably, no matter the occasion—a sensibility she brought to New York from San Francisco.

    style.com- BOSTON

    keeping it real?

    [​IMG]
    Coney Island, 1994 (2003)
    Though they seem to capture random moments in time, Philip-Lorca diCorcia's photos are far more elaborately stage-managed than they appear. It's not unusual for him to have his subjects reenact the same pose umpteen times and go through dozens of test shots to get the picture he's after—he was subtly manipulating real life three decades before the onslaught of reality TV. Now his influence is being acknowledged by the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, which is hosting a career-surveying exhibit of his work. If your travels take you to the north east this summer, it's definitely worth a detour.
