Fall/Winter 2013-14 : Behind the scene by Anne Combaz

The   exhibition   titled   Jean   Clemmer   Collaborations   Salvador   Dali/Paco   Rabanne   will   present   for   the   first   time   in   America   the   creative   partnerships   between   the   photographer   Jean   Clemmer,   the   artist   Salvador   Dalí   and   the   designer   Paco   Rabanne   that   begun   in   the   1960’s.   The   works   assemble   this   trinity  of  influence  representing  some  of  the  most  alluring  photographic  images   of   the   decade   encouraging   what   would   soon   become   known   as   the   sexual   revolution   while   asserting   Surrealism   was   a   timeless   school   of   thought.   This   body   of   work   served   as   an   important   component   in   a   mechanism  that   brought   forth  an  incendiary  upheaval  of  change. 


This   exhibition   is   curated   by   Laura   Whitcomb   author   of   Dali   the   Paradox   of   Fashion   with   the   aid   of   the   Estate   of   Jean   Clemmer   via   Hélène   Heidsieck   Clemmer  and  her  husband  Yann  Heidsieck.  It  is  made  possible  by  the  pleasant   collaboration  of  the  House  Paco  Rabanne.
