LEE ALEXANDER MCQUEEN & ANN RAY: RENDEZ-VOUS @ Crocker Art Museum
Opens at the Crocker Art Museum on December 17, 2022
December 17, 2022 — April 02, 2023
Unravel the genius of British fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen as captured by French Photographer Ann Ray in the first high-fashion exhibition presented at the Crocker. Through 63 photographs by Ann Ray and a career-spanning survey of the designer’s works, ten of which were made for his photographer and muse, this exhibition offers the opportunity to step into a world of brilliant design, intimate moments, and controversial beauty.
Brilliant, dynamic, and provocative, the British fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen founded his eponymous label in 1993 and also led design at Givenchy between 1996 and 2001. Soon after he joined Givenchy, he met French photographer Ann Ray, whose stunning photographs recorded and inspired McQueen’s work behind the scenes and in runway shows for the next thirteen years. Combining Ray’s intimate portraits and backstage images, along with key garments from McQueen’s most celebrated fashion collections and design drawings, this exhibition provides a unique insight into the creative process of this influential and complex figure. Rendez-Vous is organized and produced by Barrett Barrera Projects.
