Milestones – 60 Years
Six institutions to celebrate 60 years. That’s the innovative approach the Fondation Pierre Bergé–Yves Saint Laurent is taking to mark the anniversary of Saint Laurent’s first runway show, on January 29, 1962, when he was a mere 26 years old. The exhibition, dubbed “Yves Saint Laurent aux Musées,” celebrates both the French clothing designer’s mastery and art in general throughout a half dozen Paris museums: the Centre Pompidou, Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, Musée du Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Musée National Picasso-Paris, and Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, the latter, which opened in 2017, showcasing the Hommage à Piet Mondrian and Hommage à Tom Wesselmann dresses from 1965 and 1966, respectively. Five years later was when French photographer Jeanloup Sieff captured the courtier in black and white, which appears at the Centre Pompidou. The program runs through May 15.
