WEST PALM BEACH, FL.- Avedon Fashion 1944-2000
will be on view at the Norton Museum of Art from February 9 through May 9,
2010. The first exhibition devoted exclusively to Richard Avedon’s
fashion work, it will feature over 150 objects, including photographs from
throughout his productive career, as well as original magazines showing his work
in context and materials demonstrating his creative process. Richard Avedon is
the most significant and influential photographer to have taken fashion as one
of his subjects. He began working for Harper’s Bazaar in 1944, when he
was only twenty-one, and revolutionized fashion photography, dispensing with its
prevailing mannered and statically posed formulas and introducing a more
youthful, spirited, and distinctly American style.
SEATTLE, WA.- Michelangelo’s towering reputation as
the quintessential Renaissance man — architect, painter, sculptor, poet and
engineer — intimidated both his contemporaries and later historians to the point
that the adjective “divine” became a fixture attached to his name.
Bringing together drawings and sculptural models by Michelangelo with a range of
works by his contemporaries and generations of followers, Michelangelo Public
and Private: Drawings for the Sistine Chapel and Other Treasures from the Casa
Buonarroti is a small but powerful exhibition that humanizes the great master,
exposing the working process that led to masterpieces such as the Sistine Chapel
ceiling frescoes. Organized by the Seattle Art Museum (SAM), the
exhibition’s only venue, in collaboration with the Casa Buonarroti in Florence,
Italy, Michelangelo Public and Private will show a side of this unequivocal
master that he never wanted the public to see. The exhibition will be on view through January 31, 2010.
