Hedi Slimane Fragments Americana Exhibition

Hedi Slimane "Fragments Americana Exhibition" 25.02 — 26.03.11 at Almine Rech Gallery / Brussels. "Longevity and success. These are two things that Hedi Slimane has, of course, conquered, both in his work as designer and artist. The theme of two continues in two exhibitions at the Almine Rech Gallery, first in Brussels and then in Paris, respectively. Fragments Americana, the first exhibition by Slimane in Brussels, runs concurrently with California Dreamin – Myths and Legends of Los Angeles, curated by Slimane at the Almine Rech Gallery in Paris. Add to that an anthology of his duotone photographs taken from 2000 - 2010, consisting of four volumes to be released this month by JRP Ringier, entitled Hedi Slimane Anthology of a Decade. Shining brightly in the multidisciplinary and distinctly multilayered Fragments Americana, for example, is the work of artist and filmmaker Gus van Sant and three sculptures by Oscar Tuazon. The work of artist Mark Hagen, too, makes a stunningly memorable appearance in the group show California Dreamin. The exhibitions are full of meaning and optimism, effective and freeing, much like the figures and ideas in his work. In fact, much like Hedi himself". in anothermag [read more]
