It never ceases to amaze the myriad details that go into hanging a show. Working out the layout, leveling the prints, painting the walls, creating the signage and hanging that too. There are moments of chaos and serendipity. Like any preparation it is all forgotten the moment the first guest walks in and the party begins.
Frances Jakubek and Paula Tognarelli of the Griffin Museum of Photography and Curator, J. Sybylla Smith, hung Undressed with a meeting of the minds and a few power tools.
British photographer, Venetia Deaden, collaborated with Mulberry the quintessentially British fashion house to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the brand.
Intimate images of the runway shows in London’s Kensington Palace and New York’s SoHo House are a rare view of what goes on behind the curtain. The hours of work by talented professionals create the magical and fleeting moments on the fashion stage. Captured with a keen eye to tell the untold story, Dearden’s work is delicate, respectful, charming and witty.
Local fashion editor Jill Radsken, who caught a sneak peek described these images in one word – “breathtaking”. Join us at the opening reception October 5th and/ or at the gallery talk on the 25th.
