The Museum of Fine Arts prepares for Hiro, Kenneth Paul Block exhibits
The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston will open two fashion-related exhibitions this fall on December 12, which are the Hiro Photographs and Kenneth Paul Block Illustrations exhibits. Both exhibits will explore the work of past talents that have made contributions to the fashion industry and helped make fashion publications what they are today.
The Hiro exhibition features the surreal photography work of Hiro, a Japanese photographer born in Shanghai that conceived still life photographs, portraiture and fashion photography. A selection of Hiro’s unique fashion images for Halston, Pierre Cardin, Harry Winston, Elsa Peretti and others will be on display for viewing. The exhibit will be the first solo exhibition of his work to be held in a major American museum.
The second of the two exhibitions is of the works of the late fashion illustrator, Kenneth Paul Block. Block, who is considered to be the most important fashion illustrator of the second half of the 20th century, chronicled fashionable designs and lifestyles for various publications. The exhibit will display 30 of Block’s works spanning from the 1950s to the 1990s.
The Hiro exhibit will be held in the Herb Ritts Gallery and the Kenneth Paul Block exhibit will be held in the Clementine Brown Gallery. Both exhibits will run from December 12, 2015 through August 14, 2016.
