Jean Paul Gaultier is coming to Rotterdam

In the spring of 2013, the Kunsthal Rotterdam will present the exhibition ‘The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk’.

Gaultier has shaped the look of fashion over the last 35 years with his avant-garde fashion creations and cutting-edge designs. The first international exhibition of this celebrated and famed French couturier’s work provides a spectacular overview of his extensive oeuvre.

‘The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier’ is more of a contemporary installation than a retrospective. Over a hundred and forty original creations from the early 1970s to the present day, and from both his haute couture collections and his ready-to-wear lines, can be seen at the Kunsthal. Most of these pieces are being exhibited for the first time in the Netherlands, with exceptional loans from Madonna and Pedro Almodovar to name a few. Fashion show recordings, television programmes, films, videos, sketches and photographs by leading photographers complete the world of Gaultier.

In this multimedia exhibition, thirty unique mannequins wearing remarkable wigs and headdresses by Odile Gilbert, founder of the Atelier 68 in Paris, come ‘alive’ with interactive faces created by technologically ingenious audiovisual projections, surprising visitors with their lifelike presence.
