We’ve all seen it, we all know it - the Jean-Paul Gaultier designed conical bra and corset that Madonna wore during her 1990 “Blond Ambition” tour. It will be featured at the Barbican Centre as part of an exhibition of showcasing the work of Jean-Paul Gaultier for their 2014 season.
The Barbican lineup will also include a look at the impact of digital technology on the arts and culture, according to Reuters. There will also be a play based on the book by Colm Toibin, and more traditional events of symphony concerts, recitals and film.
The Fashion World of Jean-Paul Gaultier: From Sidewalk To Catwalk is an existing exhibition in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and will be transferring to London in April 2014, reports the BBC.
The BBC notes that most of the garments come from his Gualtier’s own collection, including outfits worn by Kylie Minogue, Bjork and burlesque star Dita Von Teese. The exhibition will feature footage of catwalk runways, concerts, music videos, films, dance performances and Gaultier's cult television show Eurotrash, a magazine-format, late-night show that ran from 1993 to 2007.
