Philip-Lorca diCorcia: Heavenly Bodies
Heavenly Bodies presents three photographs from a series of works by Philip-Lorca diCorcia, originally created on the occasion of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, The Costume Institute’s critically acclaimed 2018 spring exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Featuring models wearing ornate and refined clothing taken directly from the exhibition, diCorcia’s images weave together rich displays of visual elegance with subtle references to historical works of art and broader social realities.
Unseen since their initial publication in Vogue in 2018, these photographs are being made available here for the first time. The artist and David Zwirner will donate one edition of each work to The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Photography Department.
