MARGIELA GALLIERA 1989-2009, the first Paris retrospective exhibition dedicated to Martin Margiela, is now on view at Palais Galliera.
The show is a collaboration between former Galliera director Olivier Saillard, curator Alexandre Samson, scenographer Ania Martchenko, and Margiela.
“[Margiela] was here until last night doing the makeup for the mannequins. You can feel him in the exhibition—you can recognize everywhere the print of his hands. I did nothing, he did everything.” — Olivier Saillard to Cathy Horyn, March 1, 2018*
MARGIELA GALLIERA 1989-2009, through July 15.
