Back Side, Fashion from Behind at Paris Musée Bourdelle

Published by Elodie D. · Published on 13 May 2019 at 16h59
Back Side is the exhibition to see from July 5 to November 17, 2019 at Paris Musée Bourdelle. For this beautiful presentation devoted to backs in fashion the museum unveils over 100 silhouettes and accessories from the 18th century to nowadays for an ode to sensuality!

Designed by the Musée Galliera, the Back Side exhibition gives pride of place to this part of the body worked by the greatest designers for century: the back!

We must say that the back is one of the most sensual parts of our bodies and artists definitely got it. Low-cuts, zipper, ornaments, the exhibition curators know it: “in our society obsessed with the face, Back Side, Fashion from Behind is an original and unexpected topic”.

It’s a blessing in disguise: the Musée Galliera being closed for works, this beautiful exhibition is displayed at the Musée Bourdelle, this very beautiful museum devoted to Antoine Bourdelle’s sculptures.

With the 200,000 pieces that the fashion collection of the Ville de Paris includes, the exhibition offers a tour of 100 silhouettes and accessories from the 18th century selected for their unique visions of the back. Set next to the master’s plasters, the outfits are the occasion for a dialog between clothes and models, but most of all it will end with a social and psychological analysis.

A wonderful way to combine sculpture and fashion, we’re looking forward to it!
