From 22 September 2012 to 30 December 2012 – Dallas Contemporary

For over two decades, the meticulous and audacious imagery created by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin has challenged and inspired the field of fashion photography. In celebrating more than 25 years in the industry, the Dutch couple has created an exhibition comprised of more than 300 works. Pretty Much Everything will take over two of Dallas Contemporary’s largest galleries and will open on Saturday 22 September 2012.

They are regular contributors to Vogue Paris, Purple Magazine, W Magazine and V Magazine among many others and have created iconic advertising campaigns for leading fashion and fragrance brands including: Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Gucci, Chloe, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Chanel, Robeto Cavalli and Viktor & Rolf Parfum.

van Lamsweerde and Matadin’s career in art is equally prolific; their work is exhibited internationally and held in public and private collections across the world. Motifs from imagery produced for commercial commissions are often carried through into their artwork and the pair regard this dialogue between commerce and art a central theme of their practice.

Extending the Runway: Tatiana Sorokko Style – Phoenix – Arizona

September 16, 2010 to January 2, 2011 – Phoenix Art Museum
After a highly-anticipated and celebrated unveiling at the Russian Fashion Museum, Moscow, Extending the Runway: Tatiana Sorokko Style makes its U.S. debut at Phoenix Art Museum. The exhibition features a collection of more than 60 garments and accessories from Sorokko’s extraordinary and historically important couture wardrobe.

Tatiana Sorokko was the first Russian model to achieve international success. Moving from Moscow to Paris in 1990, she walked the runways for major designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada, Issey Miyake, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, and Calvin Klein, among many others. For over a decade, Sorokko graced the covers and editorial pages of European and American magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Elle and Cosmopolitan. Currently she is a contributing editor of American Harper’s Bazaar interviewing and styling photo shoots of notable subjects all over the world. Her influence as an international style setter and taste maker extends well beyond the runway; Sorokko was named to the International Top 100 Best Dressed list by American Vogue in 2000 and the Best Dressed Women of All Time list by Harper’s Bazaar in 2007.

Extending the Runway: Tatiana Sorokko Style will showcase works from the early 20th century through today, by legendary designers and fashion houses such as Fortuny, Paquin, Lanvin, Madame Grès, Balmain, Patou, Balenciaga, Ungaro, Hermès, Alaia, Jean Paul Gaultier, Gianfranco Ferré, Vivienne Westwood, Comme des Garçons, Yamamoto, Halston, Galanos, and Chado Ralph Rucci, among others.

Grace, all in style

– The Victoria & Albert museum has a theory concerning Grace Kelly, Princess Grace. She who was successively an anonymous theatre actress, a star in Hollywood and a European princess; she – the talented chameleon and in spite of all these changes- embodied a homogenous style throughout her life. A life under the sun and lights, and a tragic death in a car accident in 1982 that ensured her a place in the popular pantheon of the XXth century. To prove its theory the museum has deciphered that style presented as an original combination of a vamp and the girl-next-door. Grace Kelly was capable of wearing a casual pair of slacks as well as creations from the Parisian haute couture; she inspired Madonna, Kate Winslet or even designer Vera Wang. The exhibition presents her wardrobe throughout the decades, including in particular her famou s wedding gown. This exhibition is a progressive shift from the monographs of designers such as Madeleine Vionnet or Yves Saint Laurent towards the exaltation of simple fashion messengers. Would this want to prove that art can simply be a matter of style. This remains to be seen…
