Hugo Boss supports an exhibition dedicated to Michael Jackson
The fashion brand sponsored the exhibition “Michael Jackson: On the Wall”, which will be held at the National Portrait Gallery in London until October 21st and was curated by Nicholas Cullinan.
The retrospective will tell the king of pop through the works of over 40 artists, collected from public and private collections around the world.
This is the first exhibition of this kind, and the exhibition will analyze “the reasons why so many contemporary artists have been attracted to Michael Jackson as a subject but also because he continues to occupy so much space in the collective imagination”.
In addition to Hugo Boss, Sony will also sponsor the exhibition.
The selection of works includes some of the leading contemporary artists and emerging artists, including Rita Ackerman, Dara Birnbaum, Candice Breitz, Mark Flood, Isa Genzken, Gary Hume, David LaChapelle, Paul McCarthy, Catherine Opie and Andy Warhol.
“When the gallery informed us that in the exhibition there would also be the work of Graham Dolphin (appeared on the cover of the album Thriller, in which Jackson wears a Hugo Boss outfit, ndr) we wanted to participate immediately”, they explained by Hugo Boss.
The brand will also create for the occasion a new edition of the complete, in an exclusive collection of 100 pieces, in addition to a capsule of 3 different T-shirts depicting different moments of the artist’s career.
