You wouldn’t even dream of showing up at a wedding of the Royal Family or any other event of British High Society without wearing a hat, a mere hairstyle just won’t do. In cases of urgent necessity, there are plenty of prestigious designers capable of solving any and all such problems - from the haute couture creations of hat designer Philip Tracey to the jewels of Laura Catchart, there’s plenty to choose. To start learning a bit more and prepare yourself, all you need to do is take a look at the website of the Victoria & Albert Museum and have a look at its historic hat collection (exclusively online) which spans an amazing 17 centuries. What you discover is that the mere hat does not exist - there are more than you could ever imagine, an infinite number of shapes, all satisfying the most far-flung needs and tastes. You’ll never again think of the hat as a simple accessory. Its magic, its charm, it all depends on the power to transmit messages of authority, affiliation, individuality, property, rebellion and, of course, style.
The exhibition showcases rarely-seen works and offers a glimpse into future projects to be undertaken by the estate of the artists. Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Boundless introduces visitors to the couple’s seminal projects, ranging from their early collaborations to monumental masterpieces.
You can make art by rephotographing advertising images? Richard Prince achieved this by becoming one of the most renowned photographers in the world using a repertoire of strategies (such as blurring, cropping, and enlarging) to rephotograph advertising pictures and making them art.
