A Day in Dallas
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
Dallas Museum of Art
Saturday, January 14, 2012
Join the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art Association and the Metro Arts Circle as we visit the first exhibition devoted to the designs of world-renowned French couturier Jean Paul Gaultier!
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk made its U.S. debut at the Dallas Museum of Art in November 2011. Marking the first time that the DMA will present an exhibition dedicated to exploring the art of fashion, this exhibit provides an unprecedented look at the designer dubbed fashion’s “enfant terrible” from the time of his first runway shows in the 1970s and who has become one of the most important fashion designers of recent decades. Organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with the Maison Jean Paul Gaultier, the exhibition premiered in Montreal on June 15, 2011, and will be on view at the Dallas Museum of Art from November 13, 2011, through February 12, 2012, before traveling to its final stop in the U.S. at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, de Young, in March 2012.
The exhibition will feature approximately 120 ensembles from the designer’s couture collections, as well as from his prêt-à-porter line, along with their accessories. Created between 1976 and 2010, the majority of these pieces have never been exhibited. Sketches, stage costumes, and excerpts from films, runway shows, concerts, dance performances and televised interviews all will provide a look at the couturier’s world and will explore how his avant-garde fashions challenged societal and aesthetic codes in unexpected, and often humorous, ways.
