Love and Loss. Fashion and Mortality
The new fashion exhibition in Linz
is looking back at the movements that shook the 80s and brought out such talents as Martin Margiela or Rei Kawakubo. The Lentos Art Museum stages a look at the experimentative, bold, and brave designs of the 80s, many of which are continuing to influence aesthetics even today. Inspecting the concepts of beauty, and the collaboration between fashion and art, the exhibition paints a truly diverse and gripping picture, showcasing photographs, videos, sculptures and installations, many of which have never been exhibited in Austria before. Love and Loss is an exhibition definitely worth taking the trip for.
