About the exhibition

The Carla Sozzani foundation, located at no.10 Corso Como, pays tribute to the talent and creative genius of fashion photographer Antonio Lopez with a dedicated photo exhibition. Featuring over 200 original drawings, Kodak Instamatics proofs, photographic sequences, collages and short movies, the display analyses the different sessions of illustration, highlighting the artist’s visionary style and the influence of the contexts he worked in.

About women, fashion and image

The exhibition revolves around the key theme of fashion, which served as the experimental field to express beauty, sensuality, sexuality, life and time. The artist’s style is based on moments, people, spectacular clothes, music, art, kitsch and visual culture, expressed also thanks to well-known personalities of the 1970s and 1980s. These include Grace Jones, Patti LaBelle, Pat Cleveland, Maria Callas, Josephine Baker and Carmen Miranda. The shots by Lopez have brought in important innovations in the depiction of body in the world of fashion, as well as ethnic and racial awareness. The exhibition is also enhanced by the movie “Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion & Disco”, directed by James Crump and featuring interviews to Pat Cleveland, Jessica Lange, Grace Jones and Jerry Hall.
