In partnership with A Magazine Curated By, Gucci is delighted to announce a trilogy of photography exhibitions taking place in Hong Kong, Beijing and Taipei during the Spring Summer 2017 season in celebration of A Magazine Curated By Alessandro Michele. This landmark collaboration follows the global release of the magazine in November 2016 and comprises a richly didactic exhibition format that reveals an extended portfolio of imagery from a different female photographer in each city.
Starting at Art Basel Hong Kong, Petra Collins’ intimate family portraits photographed in Budapest, Hungary take centre stage. Whilst days later, Coco Capitán’s now iconic handwritings and snapshots of Rome and Florence will be shown in Beijing. The final show transports an exhaustive portrait of Joshua Tree, California by Gia Coppola to Taipei. In addition to their photographic work exhibited in a fine art context, a selection of objects and prints from the pages of A Magazine Curated By Alessandro Michele will appear together for the first time in a cabinet of curiosities selected by A Magazine Curated By Editor in Chief and exhibition curator Dan Thawley. Each exhibition features an immersive projection room, inviting visitors to enter into the pages of the magazine in a psychedelic audio-visual collage that brings Alessandro Michele’s universe to life.
ABOUT A MAGAZINE CURATED BY
Director: Dirk Van Den Eynden
Editor in Chief: Dan Thawley
Editor at Large: Blake Abbie
Art Director: Mike Meire
A Magazine Curated By is a fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue. We invite a guest curator – an international fashion designer, group or house – to develop innovative, personalised content to express their aesthetic and cultural values. Each issue celebrates this designer’s ethos: their people, their passion, their stories, emotions, fascinations, spontaneity and authenticity.
N°A Featuring Dirk Van Saene was the first ‘A Magazine’, initiated by Walter Van Beirendonck and art directed by Paul Boudens for the 2001 Landed Geland fashion festival in Antwerp. It was followed by N°B, N°C, N°D and N°E Magazines before A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela was released in 2004. Now based in Paris, but conceived as Belgium’s first fashion magazine, A Magazine Curated By has gained international acclaim for its intimate perspective into the minds of the most inspiring fashion designers working today.
