SAINT LAURENT SELF 07 PROJECT
By Crash redaction
For the past few years, Saint Laurent has been increasingly involved in cultural and artistic endeavors through various projects, in particular the SELF Project, which aims to give carte blanche to an artist, selected by Anthony Vaccarello, to interpret his or her vision of our society through the values specific of the Saint Laurent world. SELF projects have included photographic works by Daido Moriyama and Vanessa Beecroft, and videos by Bret Easton Ellis, Gaspar Noé, and Abel Ferrara. SELF 07 is an artistic commentary captured by the lens of six photographers from the Magnum agency who created exclusive artworks for Saint Laurent. Simultaneously exposed in different cities with the aim to intangibly connect the world. Six exhibitions take place at once, from the 9th to the 12th of June, in Paris, London, New York, Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai, blending creative disciplines across art and fashion through the eyes of Harry Gruyaert, Olivia Arthur, Alex Webb, Takashi Homma, Daesung Lee and Birdhead.
