Well known for his outrageous style, Jean-Paul Gaultier is an expert at exaggerated fashions, such as corsets, tutus and tights. Gaultier has extended fashion vocabulary and emphasized the imprisoned female form by adorning it in multiple layers of irony. His popular fashions such as the bullet bra he designed for Madonna after the 1980s have created sensations.
Gaultier and French choreographer Régine Chopinot, two astonishing talents of the fashion and performance worlds, came together in their first collaborative effort for a series of twelve performances from 1983 to 1994, and this exhibition presents the results of that collaboration.
The eighty costumes for this exhibition are on loan from the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the National Theater Costume Center in Moulins. There are also drawings, photographs, and videos on display.
