Fashination

 

 

Location: Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden

Client: Moderna Museet

Completion: September 2004

Brief: To design the display of the exhibition Fashination, allowing each work to have its independency while it is in dialogue with other exhibits

Starting point: The Moderna museet’s 1100 square meters rectangular space which is dedicated to their temporary exhibitions. The space had a dominating ceiling grids at seven meter’s level.

 

Fashination was a groundbreaking thematic show about the relationship between contemporary art and fashion including major figures as Hussein Chalayan, Alexander McQueen, Yinka Shonibare and Steven Meisel. The exhibition was given a dynamic diagonal structure giving each participating artist their own spaces while maintaining an open dialogue with generous open vistas.
