Back Side / Fashion from Behind
Now on - Nov 17, 2019 (ends in 3 days)

A look from behind, whether cast with admiration, contempt, or lust, can go unnoticed. The Palais Galliera's exhibition at Musée Bourdelle focuses on fashion's importance from behind and examines how messages – be they literal through print on a design, or through a flourish of skin – can be meaningful upon examination.

The emphasis is placed on the silhouettes of Bourdelle's work. Aided by over a hundred pieces of clothing and accessories (dating back to the 18th century) a dialogue is opened up between the fine art of sculpture and functional art of fashion. From the utility of a backpack to zippers and buttons that are impossible to fasten, Back Side / Fashion from Behind focuses on the rear-side of fashion the wearer never notices, yet evokes glances unseen.

Antoine Bourdelle had a prolific career which included collaborations with fellow sculptor, Auguste Rodin of The Thinker fame. Musée Bourdelle gathers the artist's masterpieces and lesser-known works at his studio in the heart of Paris.

The museum retains much of its original splendor, with personal mementos still occupying their original places. See plaster casts in the great hall, sketches from throughout Bourdelle's life and career, and roam the garden with its myriad of bronze statues.
