// Balenciaga Goes West
From the de Young Museum newsletter: “Balenciaga and Spain examines the profound and enduring influence of Spain on the work of haute couture master Cristóbal Balenciaga. The impact of Spanish culture, history, and traditions is explored through the recurring themes in Balenciaga’s oeuvre and organized in the exhibition in six sections: Spanish Art, Regional Dress, the Spanish Court, Religious Life and Ceremony, the Bullfight, and Dance. Hamish Bowles, the European editor at large for Vogue, is guest curator. Objects are drawn from museum and private collections in France, Spain, and the United States, including the FAMSF collection.”
Holy shit! I posted about this exhibition debuting in New York, but I’m so excited it’s coming to the west coast (LA, wait your turn)! There’s a big opening party on the 24th, which I’m sure none of us are invited to, but there are lectures and tours scheduled throughout April. Check out the exhibition site for more info.
