Erwin Olaf in spectacular show in Paris ‘MARIE ANTOINETTE – METAMORPHOSES OF AN IMAGE’
October 17, 2019
In Paris at The Conciergerie a new show on Marie Antoinette examines her image in life, and after. Tracing her journey from detested queen to global idol is a new exhibition, “Marie Antoinette: Metamorphosis of an Image,” staged at the very Paris prison where she spent the last weeks of her life.
The exhibition will illustrate the many representations of Marie-Antoinette through almost 200 works, artefacts, heritage and contemporary archives, never-before-seen interviews, film extracts and fashion accessories, and shine a light on this worldwide phenomenon of media overkill through both a historic approach and a critical and comparative examination of forms.
