FLÁVIO DE CARVALHO UNDRESSES FASHION FROM HEAD TO FOOT

Flávio de Carvalho was an artist, architect, and thinker who published in the 1950s what would be considered the first Brazilian fashion theory. This original fashion concept was the starting point for this exhibition, where the human body was mapped and spacially reassembled: Head, neck, and legs, in an arrangement analogous to our pace when walking. The show promoted a dialogue between the visionary perspective of Flávio de Carvalho with the recent Brazilian fashion, in more than 200 large format images of contemporary photographers. The curators were Agnaldo Farias and Mariana Lanari, and the exhibition was held in São Paulo, at the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture-MuBE in 2010, and in Rio de Janeiro at the Museu of Modern Art (MAM-RJ) from February 23 to April 10, 2011. A project sponsored by the C&A brand with the support of the Ministry of Culture through the National Support Program for Culture (PRONAC).
