Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty
Nunca vi uma exposição tão poderosa como Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
Absorvi tanto que quando cheguei à sala Cabinet of Curiosities (foto abaixo), sentei-me para abrandar as emoções e preparar a minha mente para o seguinte. Foi impossível! Tudo à minha volta era magnífico e era impossível parar a envolvência com o mundo McQueen. Quando acabei de ver a exposição precisei de mais de uma hora para processar tudo o que tinha visto.
I’ve never seen such a powerful exhibition as Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
I had already visited other fashion exhibitions at the Victoria & Albert Museum and other museums and none of them was so great and engaging as this one.
As a museum member, I got at the exhibition half an hour before the museum opened, avoid the queues and see everything calmly and tranquility.
I absorbed so much that when I entered the Cabinet of Curiosities room (pictured below), I sat down to slow down the emotions and prepare my mind for the next. It was impossible! Everything around me was magnificent and it was impossible to stop the involvement with McQueen’s world. When I finished the exhibition, I needed more than an hour to process everything I had seen.
I don’t know when I will have an intense experience such as this one but no doubt it caught me by surprise. If you like art (even if you don’t like fashion), this exhibition is a must see.
The whole team of the V&A and supporters did an exceptional job in this exhibition. The whole composition of the rooms, the artist quotes and the chosen art pieces are the result of a tribute’s work that deserves to be seen and acclaimed.
All pictures I can show you, don’t convey the exhibition itself. You have to go and feel it. This week, the museum launched new exhibition times and more tickets are available, so don’t miss this chance to book your tickets.
