Exh: ATOPOS Paper Dresses at D'Orsay (Paris, til 04/10)
If you're in Paris, get thee to Musée D'Orsay! ATOPOS, the Greek cultural organization that focuses on technology and design-fashion-contemporary art, is currently part the ART NOUVEAU REVIVAL at the Musee d'Orsay. The exhibition, which opened in Oct 2009 and continues until 2 April '10, includes from the ATOPOS collection a selection of disposable paper dresses and packaging from the 60's.
Prior to the D'Orsay, ATOPOS presented with great success to the public and the press at Antwerp's MoMu fashion museum, where over 32.500 people visited their exhibition within the five months of its staging. Next stop: Museum Bellerive in Zurich during spring/summer 2010.
Thanks to Vassilis Zidianakis, Artistic Director of ATOPOS, for sharing news of your successes. Congratulations!
