Forte di Bard has dedicated a big retrospective exhibition to the master who marked the history of contemporary fashion and costume photography. Entitled Gian Paolo Barbieri – Oltre, this event was produced in collaboration with the foundation, curated by Emmanuele Randazzo, Giulia Manca and Catia Zucchetti, from October 28, 2023 to March 3, 2024 in the Cellar Rooms of the museum. Will be display 112 photographs, including 88 unpublished photographs ranging from the 1960s to the 2000s, the result of extensive research in the artist’s analog archive.
Gian Paolo Barbieri – Oltre is a journey through the photographer’s life, a well-rounded journey that shows a different face from the one we already know. It pays attention to details, to that innermost imagery that goes beyond the image, beyond fashion, beyond nature. It goes beyond everything.
