A Musical Exploration of the Creative Spirit of Fashion Icon Jean Paul Gaultier
Tuesday, February 7, 7:30 p.m.
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art
Inspired by the exhibition The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
Jean Paul Gaultier, who ingeniously reinvented underwear as outerwear, is renowned for his creative construction of garments ranging from the sublime to the avant-garde. His portfolio of impeccable craftsmanship and calculated innovation has both garnered praise and fueled controversy around the world. Using Gaultier’s creative spirit as inspiration, six musicians respond to his collections in a one-of-a-kind, one-night-only performance with musical selections ranging from Mendelssohn and Madonna to Gershwin and Gaga. Fashioned Forward revels in the fusion of French fashion with the eclectic musings of Diana Vreeland, Mark Doty, and Jean Paul Gaultier himself.
This marks the seventh collaboration of Arts & Letters Live with artistic programmer Ryan Taylor, who will create a multimedia extravaganza blending visuals of Gaultier’s work with musical and literary excerpts designed to resonate with the imagination of this celebrated French couturier, designer, and social provocateur.
