The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is organising a retrospective of the late British fashion designer Alexander McQueen for 2015, based on the blockbusting show in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, organised by its Costume Institute three years ago.

The director of the V&A, Martin Roth, who has long wanted to bring a version of the sell-out show to London, said in a statement: “By staging the exhibition at the V&A, it feels like we are bringing his work home.”

“I always hoped that an exhibition would be shown in London, Alexander McQueen’s home city, and I made ‘Savage Beauty’ always with a plan that one day it would be shown there. I worked on the [Met] exhibition for a year and I realised that it was only one essay that could written about him; there are so many facets to his work,” he says.

Bolton says that, while he is not a great believer in returning to a subject, McQueen is an exception. “For example, you could look at his deep interest in art; he had a great collection of contemporary art and a deep love of art history,” he says.

Dalí comes to São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro

Dalí

The Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueras, Spain, has something ghostly. Until his death in 1989, the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí had a habit of walking through the spaces of the institution when empty.

He said that the Theatre-Museum was his last great creation, says Montse Aguer, director of the Center for Studies Dalinianos Foundation Gala-Salvador Dalí. Between 1970 and 1974, Dalí reformed the place destroyed in a fire in 1939 during the Spanish Civil War, to become “the largest surrealistic object in the world” in his hometown in Catalonia.

From the outside, the facade of the Teatro-Museo Dalí, who received last year, 953,291 visitors, is flanked by reproductions of giant eggs. Inside, 11 oil paintings, graphic works, books, objects, photos, movies and documents belonging to the collection of works by the artist in the Catalan institution are being prepared to travel to Brazil soon.

Will be presented, along with over 10 oils of the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid and 9 paintings of Salvador Dali Museum in Florida, USA, in the first exhibition dedicated to the great surrealista in the South America, that will be inaugurated on May 29 at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brazil in Rio de Janeiro and later in October, in the Tomie Ohtake Institute in Sao Paulo.

The works of the Spanish artist in Rio and São Paulo (who will not receive paintings of the Florida Museum) were prepared especially for Brazilians. “We wanted to present the whole Dalí for Brazil, but especially the Dali surrealist in 1930s, the era valued for his production, which made him famous” says Aguer, curator of the exhibition.
