My latest endeavor was to take a look at "Eye Pop: The Celebrity Gaze" - a selection of portraits that investigate the concept of fame in today's world. What is fame? What makes one famous? How does one sustain fame? Why are some people famous while others are not? You can ask many of these questions as you walk through the exhibition halls.
I always enjoy shows that bring a lot of different media together to investigate the same topic. In this show, you will find color and black-and-white photographs, video montages, prints with rhinestones added to the surface, paintings, pencil sketches, sculptures ... There is something for everybody!
And of course, it would not be me if I did not find something related to fashion at this show! Diane von Furstenberg has a wonderful large-sized portrait on show. And you will also see a great art piece showing young looking Marc Jacobs.
I was touched by many of the portraits. I enjoyed seeing people in their environments of choice (e.g., there is a gorgeous photograph of Alice Waters in a garden with tress and herbs and vegetables) as well as closeups of the celebrities. Take a stroll through the intimate show and enjoy the art!
