The Artist is Present

The Artist is Present, curated by Maurizio Cattelan and powered by Alessandro Michele’s Gucci, features a selection of more than thirty artists, foreign and Chinese, to question the most hallowed principles of art in the modern era: originality, intention and expression. The show explores how originality can be reached through the act of repetition, and how originals themselves can be preserved through replication. Immerse in a multi-sensorial experience of sight and sense as you proceed from one room to another – each of which picks up a different point of view on how originality, intention and expression are deconstructed and reimagined.

Beauty in the Yumeji Style

The ‘bijinga’ (portraits of beautiful women) by Takehisa Yumeji (1884 – 1934) portrays a distinctive mannerism that was subsequently coined the ‘Yumeji beauty style’. The artist developed this poetic and minimalist yet romantic style after meeting his wife Tamaki, as well as his strong relationships with his mother and sister. His works show sympathy toward women in general, who at the time were socially and politically oppressed. The exhibition allows visitors to look into the artist’s vision of the ideal woman – wide eyes, soft bodylines, demeanour and poise, as well as the fashion of that era. (Courtesy of Takehisa Yumeji)

Fresh from its successful debut at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Dior continues to spread its legacy to Denver Art Museum with Dior: From Paris to the World. The exhibition is an exploration of the fashion house’s enduring legacy from Christian Dior’s couture pieces dating back to 1947 to the polarising aesthetics of subsequent artistic directors who succeeded him at the helm of the iconic haute couture fashion house – Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano and Marc Bohan.
