Art and Fashion since Modernism 15.06.–23.09.12
The convergence of art and fashion had already been fully developed more than 100 years ago. Today, they have combined together in a productive crossover that defines the creative expression of a new lifestyle. This summer, a comprehensive exhibition at the mumok will embark upon a journey through the history of art and fashion from early modernism to the present. Reflecting Fashion unites more than 300 paintings, drawings, sketches, textiles, videos and photographs by such artists as Giacomo Balla, Sonia Delaunay, Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Yayoi Kusama, Cindy Sherman, Stephen Willats and many more. The exhibition will include works on loan from more than 70 internationally renowned institutions and private collections.
Opening: June 14, 2012–7.00 p.m.
Venue: MUMOK, Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna
The exhibition will be opened parallel with the “Summer of Fashion” in the MuseumsQuartier.
Curator: Susanne Neuburger in collaboration with Barbara Rüdiger
