For the exhibition Dries Van Noten Inspirations, MoMu colabs with CinemaZuid in Antwerp. This month you can enjoy two movies of Dries Van Noten’s choice. He selected four movies – Iris, Chariots of fire, The man who fell to earth and Howard’s end -which are part of his inspirations, to complete his exposition now running at MoMu Antwerp.
First of all Iris will be introduced into your life. Although it would be quite a surprise if you didn’t know her already. Iris has been present in the New York fashion scene for decades and keeps on showing the world that art, life and fashion are just a big experiment. This inspiration has been captured by legendary, recently deceased, Albert Maysles in the movie “Iris”.
Chariots of fire is an Oscar-winning and fashion changing film by Hugh Hudson. It tells the story of two track athletes competing each other to win the golden medal at the Olympics of ’24 in Paris. The movie about the decided Jew and the devoted Christian was especially important to Dries because of its costume design by Milena Canonero. The release of the movie was for him the cause of fashion changing its course.
Feeling impatient? Come and visit our exhibition Dries Van Noten Inspirations at MoMu to get a look into the marvelous brain of Dries Van Noten. For more information about the movies and the rest of the programme you can visit www.cinemazuid.be.
