Be Faboulous

Curated by Federica Cirri at The Aria Art Gallery

Aria Art Gallery

On 16 June 2014, on the occasion of Pitti Uomo and Firenze Hometown of Fashion, Aria Art Gallery in cooperation with the Steven Kasher Gallery of New York, will proudly welcome Roxanne Lowit among its artists with the exhibition “Be Fabulous”, curated by Federica Cirri. 

This mini-retrospective will showcase 40 large scale color, modern and vintage photographs selected from an archive of over 200,000 negatives and slides Ms. Lowit shot during hundreds of fashion events from the 1970s to the present. Paris and New York, London and Milan, from Yves Saint Laurent to Iggy Pop, from Kate Moss and Salvador Dalì, her pictures bear witness to a world in which dressing up and going out in the evening was a lifestyle; the exhibition features a selection of portraits of those she calls “people with magic”, the people who led Ms. Lowit to become the chronicler of the “fabulous” era.
