F4T: "Fashion and Appearance in Quebec Art" at the Musée National des Beaux-arts du Québec



Marie Saint Pierre, Redingote de soirée, 2011.



If you're a Québécois, you're in luck! From February 9 to May 6, 2012, the Musée National des Beaux-arts du Québec will show "Fashion and Appearance in Quebec Art, 1880 - 1945," which explores the correlation between Quebec's men's and women's clothing styles and contemporary international fashion trends. On view are more than 100 works by Quebec artists from these years, as well as department store advertisements, catalogues, and photographs. To complement the exhibition, Quebec's leading fashion designers today -- Christian Chenail, Marie Dooley, Philippe Dubuc and Marie Saint Pierre, among others -- will display garments inspired by the works on view, illustrating "the great effervescence of this artistic milieu."
