ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Homage To Karl Lagerfeld
Through May 15, 2019 / Galerie Gmurzynska

Karl Lagerfeld, Nicole Kidman, c. 1995

Karl Lagerfeld whose multifaceted personality helped set the fashion industry’s standard for five decades, died last week in Paris. He was 85. He had served as the creative director at Chanel for 36 years.

 

Karl Lagerfeld, Lüstern aber schüchtern, From the series Hommage an Lyonel Feininger, 1997

Karl Lagerfeld, Costumes for the triadic ballet “Hommage à Oskar Schlemmer,” 1997 / Die Drei und der rote Pfosten, Serie Hommage an Lyonel Feininger, 1997

Since our first exhibition at Galerie Gmurzynska in 1996, Karl has continuously and fearlessly explored the avant-garde of photographic processes; combining his compositional eye with his keen interest in the lost histories of the medium. His deep knowledge of art history has always been clearly illustrated in fresh ways throughout his oeuvre, while creating his own unique processes that will continue their influence on photography and art in general.
