The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is pleased to present the first exhibition on French creator Thierry Mugler. Four of David LaChapelle's pieces will be featured including, 'Faye Dunaway: Day of the Locust' (1996), 'Exhibition' (1997), and 'Lady Gaga: I Want Your Disease' (2009).

Conceived, produced and put on tour by the MMFA, this exhibition will reveal the multiple universes of this undeniably artistic figure – visionary couturier, director, photographer and perfumer – in a retrospective of his work, especially his ready-to-wear and haute couture creations.

Presented in Montreal as a world premiere, this spectacular retrospective brings together more than 140 ensembles, most of them on display for the first time, created between 1973 and 2001, as well as many never-before seen accessories and stage costumes, clips and videos, archival documents and sketches. A hundred works by the greatest contemporary fashion photographers such as Avedon, Bourdin, Goude, LaChapelle, Newton, Ritts round out the exhibition. Each of the immersive galleries has been designed with artist-designers or set designers such as Michel Lemieux and Philipp Fürhofer.

The show will be open from March 2 to September 8, 2019
