After its runs in Montreal and Rotterdam, where it attracted 465,000 visitors, the Thierry Mugler: Couturissime exhibition is now opening at the Kunsthalle München. With Germany easing its stay-at-home measures, visitors can discover the fascinating world of Thierry Mugler through 150 garments made between 1977 and 2014 as well as through videos, unpublished sketches, and rare prints signed by the biggest names in fashion photography.
Presented until August 30, 2020, this exhibition conceived by the MMFA and curated by Montrealer Thierry-Maxime Loriot, under the direction of Nathalie Bondil, lends an international showcase to Quebec expertise thanks to an immersive installation by special effects studio Rodéo FX and a spectacular digital work by Michel Lemieux.
In 2019, the Montreal presentation of Thierry Mugler: Couturissime was the 9th most popular exhibition internationally in the Decorative Arts and Fashion category according to The Art Newspaper. It was also the most visited exhibition in Canada that year.
Thierry Mugler: Couturissime is initiated, produced and circulated by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration with the Maison Mugler.
