Across Art and Fashionat Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, Florence

The complex relationship between art and fashion
From 19 May, 2016






The exhibition organized by Fondazione Ferragamo and Museo Salvatore Ferragamo explores the complex relationship between art and fashion. Drawing on Salvatore Ferragamo’ attitude, whose fascination with twentieth century avant-garde art movement led him to find inspiration in the world of art and collaborate with many of the artists of his time, the exhibition explores the artistic experimentation of the Nineties and ultimately asks the question of whether, in today’s cultural industry, these worlds are still separate and distinct, or if they are now caught in a fluid role play. A  unique project made possible by the collaboration with cultural institutions, which have provided space and pieces from their collections. From Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale to Galleria del Costume di Palazzo Pitti all these institutions are part of a common reflection on art and fashion.
