Art 101—Lee Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse
Wed, 04/27/2022 – 16:01
Join Clarissa Esguerra, associate curator of Costume and Textiles, and Michaela Hansen, curatorial assistant, Costume and Textiles, as they take you behind the scenes of Lee Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse.
This overview lecture contextualizes the designer’s imaginative work within a canon of artmakers who drew upon analogous themes and visual references. Exploring imagination, artistic process, and innovation in fashion and art, the exhibition examines the interdisciplinary impulse that defined the designer’s career. Displaying select McQueen garments from the Collection of Regina J. Drucker alongside artworks largely from LACMA’s permanent collection, Mind, Mythos, Muse presents a case study of the designer’s methods and influences, and in doing so, provides the opportunity to better understand artistic legacy and cycles of inspiration.
Guests will have an opportunity to participate during the conversation’s question and answer period via Zoom’s Q&A function.
LACMA members and invited guests only. Invitations sent via email.
This event will take place online via Zoom.
