Yves Saint Laurent Aux Musées
1:00 p.m. EST
American Friends of the Louvre is pleased to invite you to a Zoom webinar to explore the exhibition Yves Saint Laurent Aux Musées, presented by lecturer and art, fashion and design specialist, Cyrielle André.
This sweeping exhibition celebrates the 60th anniversary of the first Yves Saint Laurent runway show and brings together six Parisian museums – the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d’Art Moderne, the Musée du Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Musée National Picasso and the Musée Yves Saint Laurent – to delve into the profound inspirational bond the couturier had with French art, literature and museum collections.
Cyrielle André will present some of the fascinating highlights of the life of Saint Laurent, one of the most influential fashion designers of the twentieth century. He was a keen museum-goer, and a discerning art lover and the first among his peers in the industry to be simultaneously honored in so many classic institutions. Ms. André will also talk about his vast body of work in dialogue with the permanent collections of the six prestigious institutions.
A link to access the lecture via Zoom or phone will be shared the morning of the event. The webinar will last about 60 mn and will not be recorded.
