New York's leading Latino cultural institution, El Museo del Barrio, on Tuesday opened its Antonio Lopez: Future Funk Fashion exhibit featuring the work of fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez.


Antonio Lopez: Future Funk Fashion


The exhibition, which is co-curated by Rocío Aranda-Alvarado, Curator at El Museo del Barrio and Amelia Malagamba-Ansótegui, a scholar from Arizona State University and University of Texas San Antonio, explores various aspects of Lopez’s work, including high fashion illustrations, his relationship to certain models, his shoe and jewelry designs and images of people he knew from New York City. The works on display come from the Estate of Antonio Lopez and Juan Ramos and various private collections in New York City.
 
Lopez, who was born in Puerto Rico on February 11, 1943, illustrated fashions for Women’s Wear Daily and The New York Times before eventually becoming a freelance artist for many top fashion publications. His work explored and represented the ethnic and racialized body within the world of high fashion, and he helped develop a new style of beauty throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Lopez moved to Paris with his friend and business partner Juan Ramos in order to work with Karl Lagerfeld and other designers.

Lopez and his family migrated to New York City when he was seven years old. His mother, who was a seamstress, kept him out of trouble by asking him to draw flowers for her embroideries. Lopez’s illustration prowess earned him a scholarship to the Traphagen School of Fashion in New York, got him accepted to the High School of Art and Design as well as the Fashion Institute of Technology. Lopez passed away at the age of 44 due to complications related to AIDS.
 
Antonio Lopez: Future Funk Fashion will be on view from June 14 through November 26, 2016. El Museo del Barrio is located at 1230 Fifth Avenue in New York City’s Museum Mile.
