The exhibit is entitled Revolutionary Reflections, and celebrates these cultural icons, rebels and disruptors of our generation. His collection is named Photoplasticity: when Fashion meets Music. Additionally, Rabanne has pushed the medium of photography by placing his images on non-traditional media such as sound walls, skateboards, plexiglass, fabrics and even— chocolates. Some are embellished with diamond dust and other mixed media.
In keeping with 70 South Gallery’s mission to promote up and coming artists, this exhibition will feature the work of a high school student, Emily Moskowitz from Livingston High School. Moskowitz has produced captivating 360 views of the world around us.
“Rabanne blends artistry with edginess on non-traditional mediums which result in some really knock out looking art pieces," said Gina Cerbone, the gallery's Curator. "Roberto’s work, coupled with our student Emily’s keen eye, we have created an exceptional exhibition.”
