“It's been very rewarding to bring together high-profile artists and seriously committed to their careers in this first exhibition of a project that will recall the importance of fashion for years 70 in Brazil and its ramifications”, Angela celebrates, supplementing saying she and Renata managed to unite two passions with this show: fashion and art. “Fashion goes beyond clothing, portrays customs, behaviors and ideologies, this theme is always present in our works”.
Angela explains that the exhibition will portray the so-called Brazilian Miracle, that na decade 70 triggered an accelerated economic activity and an excited consumer market, fundamental to the effervescence of fashion representations in Brazil during this period. “In these years we see jingoism fueled by victory in the World Cup, the motto 'Brazil love it or leave it', consumerism and the euphoria, that were soon to clash with censorship and political persecution. Fashionable starts professionalization, the boutiques stay themselves and begin to produce their own creations and luxury clothing”, recalls. “All this will be portrayed in paintings and installations”.
According to Renata, the main inspiration of his presentation was the fashion designer Zuzu Angel mining, precursor in portraying the instinct of nationality in their creations and also the first creator of Brazilian clothing to sell its production in New York. At the time, she created a collection inspired by national theme - with Baianas, Lamps and Marias Beautiful. His job was located in a middle ground between high fashion and everyday clothing. Stuart Angel, son of Zuzu, was a victim of the military dictatorship, moment when the artist puts all his strength in the search for his son's corpse, making the first parade-denunciation of fashion history, held in New York. “This was a very important period in our history that deserves to be remembered”, defends Renata. In addition to Sao Paulo, the exhibition will take place in Rio de Janeiro, in Paris, Lisbon and New York.
