Fashion + Film: The 1960s Revisited

Submitted by on Thursday, 5 February 2009No Comment

Focusing on the 1960s, this multimedia exhibition will explore the cross-cultural relations between a number of European countries’ cinematography and fashion and their reception in modern US culture. In particular, the show will present for the first time archival materials such as photographs, costume sketches, interviews with stars, (Archivio San Biagio, Cesena and Roberto Palmas archive), Italian TV commercials from RAI, the Italian State Television company; as well as feature films by Federico Fellini (La Dolce Vita; 8 1/2), Michelangelo Antonioni’s (L’Avventura, La Notte, Red Desert, Blow up, Zabriskie Point), Jean Luc Godard (Breathless; Contempt), Luchino Visconti’s (Rocco and his brothers), Pier Paolo Pasolini,( Accattone, Teorema), Elio Petri, (The 10th Victim), Ingmar Bergman (Persona); and clothing in the style of the period. The juxtaposition of this rich and diverse material along with film screenings will allow viewers to critically revisit one of the most important and innovative decades of the twentieth century. A symposium featuring internationally renowned scholars in the fields of film, art, and fashion such as Adriana Berselli, the costume designer who worked with Antonioni’s L’Avventura, will explore the multifaceted relationship between fashion and film and their impact on the construction and projection of personal and collective identities and style. Testifying to the enormous impact the 1960s and its aesthetics has had on contemporary culture is the popularity of a TV show such as Mad Men and recent feature films such as Lone Scherfig’s An Education or Tom Ford’s A Single Man, both set in the 1960s.
