Gucci showcases photo exhibits in Asia to launch magazine issue | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

Gucci is showcasing a trilogy of photography exhibitions in Hong Kong, Beijing and Taipei for the Spring Summer 2017 season in celebration of A Magazine Curated By Alessandro Michele.

This landmark collaboration followed the global release of the magazine in November 2016, and reveals an imagery from a different female photographer in each city. Starting at Art Basel Hong Kong, Petra Collins’ intimate family portraits photographed in Budapest, Hungary took center stage. Days later, Coco Capitán’s now iconic handwritings and snapshots of Rome and Florence were shown in Beijing. The final show transported an exhaustive portrait of Joshua Tree, California by Gia Coppola to Taipei.

A selection of objects and prints from the pages of A Magazine Curated By Alessandro Michele will appear together for the first time in a cabinet of curiosities selected by A Magazine Curated By Editor in Chief and exhibition curator Dan Thawley. Each exhibition features an immersive projection room, inviting visitors to enter into the pages of the magazine in a psychedelic audio-visual collage that brings Alessandro Michele’s universe to life.

A Magazine Curated By is a fashion magazine that explores the universe of a chosen fashion designer in each issue. A guest curator—an international fashion designer, group or house—develops innovative content to express their aesthetic and cultural values. N°A Featuring Dirk Van Saene was the first A Magazine, initiated by Walter Van Beirendonck and art directed by Paul Boudens for the 2001 Landed Geland fashion festival in Antwerp. It was followed by N°B, N°C, N°D and N°E Magazines before A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela was released in 2004.

Now based in Paris, but conceived Belgium’s first fashion magazine, A Magazine Curated By has gained international acclaim for its intimate perspective on the minds of the most inspiring fashion designers working today.
