Richard Avedon at Palazzo Reale: the exhibition you can’t miss during Milan Fashion Week

From today Sept. 22, 2022 to Jan. 29, 2023, Palazzo Reale in Milan celebrates Richard Avedon (1923-2004), one of the masters of twentieth-century photography, with an exhibition titled Richard Avedon: Relationships that traces his more than sixty-year career through 106 images from the collection of the Center for Creative Photography (CCP) in Tucson, USA, and the Richard Avedon Foundation, USA. The exhibition promoted by the City of Milan-Culture, produced and organized by Palazzo Reale and Skira Editore in collaboration with the Center for Creative Photography and the Richard Avedon Foundationis curated by Rebecca Senf, head of the Center for Creative Photography collection, and features Versace as main partner and Vogue Italia media partner. The catalog is published by SKIRA publisher.






The exhibition will provide an in-depth look at the innovative features of Avedon’s art that made him one of the most influential authors of the 20th century; while on the one hand, he revolutionized the way models are photographed, transforming them from static subjects to actresses who are the protagonists of the set, also showing their human side, on the other hand, his striking celebrity portraits, in black and white and often large format, are capable of revealing the innermost psychological side of the person portrayed. One section is dedicated to the collaboration between Richard Avedon and Gianni Versace, which began with the campaign for the spring/summer 1980 collection, which decreed the designer’s debut, up to the campaign for the spring/summer1998 collection, the first signed by Donatella Versace. Avedon’s work for Versace is a depiction of how that unique relationship that is sometimes created between designer and photographer can produce images destined for an out-of-time zone, definitively beyond the circumscribed narrative they were originally intended for, linked to the seasonality of fashion, to revolutionize instead its global narrative.
