Organized by Vogue contributing editor and SCAD trustee André Leon Talley, "Antonio Lopez and the World of Fashion Art" presents a rich overview of the creative and dynamic work of fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez (1943-87).
Lopez’s seminal works, which adorned the pages of Vogue, The New York Times, Women’s Wear Daily and Interview throughout the 1970s and 1980s, remain a powerful source of inspiration, galvanizing contemporary visual culture through a variety of mediums including fine art, digital media and fashion.
The exhibition will showcase three decades of Lopez’s prolific creative output, including never-seen-before drawings, photographs and ephemera. Inspired by his muses, contemporary culture and a broad range of historical and artistic movements, Lopez forged a diverse body of work rendered in pencil, ink, charcoal, watercolor and film. His distinctive method, which synthesized dedicated study and intrinsic virtuosity, established him as one of the most influential tastemakers of the age.
The exhibition is free with SCAD Museum of Art admission.
