Peter Lindbergh’s Supermodels to Be Even More Super

It looks like Peter Lindbergh’s show at Gagosian Paris is being expanded into a larger retrospective to launch in 2015. Plus, the French-Canadian curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot — who created the Gaultier retrospective (now in Melbourne) from scratch — has been tapped to produce it. Which suggests it won’t be a straightforward, chronologically based retrospective, but a more immersive and perhaps fanciful affair. If Jean Paul Gaultier could be transformed into a speaking animatronic mannequin, just think what can be done with the 80s and 90s supermodels — Linda Kate Moss, Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz — Lindbergh is famed for immortalizing.
