The fake Vogue covers at La Monnaie de Paris

Exposition Couverture Vogue Artiste

A few days before fashion week, here is the arty event everyone is talking about. Check it out: a furiously fashion and feminist exhibition has just been set up at La Monnaie de Paris.

You have no more excuses, the entrance is free and the benefits of the Christie's auction sale will be donated to programmes in favour of the equality of sexes and the empowerment of women, led by ONU Femmes.

«Artistes à la Une, Togeth’Her»®

The project of this exhibition under the helm of curator David-Hervé Boutin? A carte blanche to 33 confirmed contemporary artists and the young generation, selected around the world. The challenge? Create on a (blank) cover of the Vogue Paris magazine. In this case: the portrait of an iconic and inspiring woman in their eyes.

Plastician ORLAN illustrated Joséphine Baker and Simone de Beauvoir, the very controversial Joana Vasconcelos chose Marie-Antoinette, Jean-Michel Othoniel illustrated Marie-Agnès Gillot while Eva Jospin tackled Emily Brontë.

Exhibition from Tuesday the 19th to Wednesday the 27th of February 2019 from 11am to 7pm, on Wednesday from 11am to  9pm.
