The most genius proposition of the season. Good money down that the audience will be jammed with fashion all-stars (I see you Raf Simons).

You loved the way Lambie's Zobop Fluoro, 2004 amped out the entry space of MOMA for that epic "Color Chart: Reinventing Color" exhibit and the "Found Flowers" series which featured iconic pop stars like George Micheal and Grace Jones swaddled in high chromatic flowers, has been a massive cult influence for a certain body of Belgian fashion designers (check the Raf Simons inspiration board).
As such this contemporary artist has a very acute understanding of the function of fantasy in activating pop culture glamour. As a reference point for art directors of all ilk , this work reminds you that a great visual stylist can express an emotion of joy in lushly visual terms.
Here is the artist's description of his process:
EAGERLY ANTICIPATING: Sanja Ivekovic: Sweet Violence: December 18, 2011-March 26, 2012: MOMA (NEW YORK)Submitted by Wayne on Tue, 2011-08-09 20:04.
As a pioneering feminist, activist, and video and performance artist in the 60's and 70's , Iveković emitted work that fought valiantly against the then rigid and institutionalized idea of contemporary art. Her wide ranging oeuvre allowed her to challenge everything from the mass media culture of capitalism to the transformation of Eastern Europe from communist to post-communist political systems. This MOMA exhibition, her first ever American retrospective, affords Iveković the opportunity to present a new generation with her vital ideas. The following excerpt from the MOMA press release outlines the exhibition's construct.
