Special Event: Icons by Markus Klinko and Indrani

06/17/2010

Last night was the Icons exhibition opening/premiere party of Double Exposure for Markus Klinko and Indrani. I have to admit, I was curious to see the photographs of such notable fashion photographers up close and in person. And I figured the party wasn’t going to be bad either. Here is an excerpt about the exhibition that peaked my interest in attending and some pictures of the event.

“In a world where authenticity is an autograph and reality is a genre of TV, our images provide society a mirror to reflect upon it’s ideals and devotions. With this exhibition “we seek to encourage viewers to question, what makes these individuals so beloved? What do they represent for each of us, what roles have we asked them to play, that they inspire such passion in us?  Why do we as a society raise them up to be larger than life, blur the lines between fantasy and reality, admiration and obsessive cult behaviour, appoint them as deities for public consumption, then rip them apart if they reveal human flaws? We hope that ICONS will inspire it’s viewers to reflect upon the blinding light of celebrity and the long shadows cast.”
