“The exhibit departs from the iconic singer’s career and her collaborations with artists, designers, photographers and musicians to question black image-making and gender binarism as well as both performance and the performance of life,”
The exhibition is also set to feature works of Jean Michel Basquiat, Roland Barthes, Andy Warhol and ACT UP. Although it is announced that the exhibition will run from September 26th to January 3, subject to these dates may change due to Covid-19 pandemic.
