Fashion, Film and Fame: Works from the MoCP Collection

Nan Goldin, James King Backstage at the Karl Lagerfeld Show, Paris, 1995   

About the Exhibition

Accompanying Nollywood Portraits: A Radical Beauty, this exhibition features photographs from the MoCP’s permanent collection that intersect with themes seen throughout artist Iké Udé’s work: the use of costume, props, pose and stylized camera techniques to communicate narratives about the film industry, celebrity and identity. Select works by Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Nan Golden, George Hurrell, Irving Penn, Sandro, Victor Skrebneski, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, among others will be on view.

The 2016-2017 season is sponsored by the Efroymson Family Fund and the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
