Our girl was one of the key “pieces” of Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles’s 30th Anniversary Gala yesterday one-night-only production.
The moment I read Francesco Vezzoli will be the one behind it, without knowing any details, I was already excited. Then I found him talking about the song Lady Gaga will perform and my only wish was – if only I could be there: “The music is a new song by Gaga called Speechless. Which I should say is rather different from most of the music we have heard from her. I like the idea that it would be unexpected. Because we are all happily accustomed to Gaga’s hyperpop. And this is going to be rather more dramatic”.
One-night-only production. One of a kind objects and costumes created by renowned contemporary artists and designers.
The pink piano painted with butterflies is by Damien Hirst.
Her hat was created by Frank Gehry.
The same genius who designed two of my favourite buildings. Fred and Ginger Building in Prague and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, here in Spain. I still can’t believe it!
Since I believed this is the very fist hat Mr. Gehry has ever created, I was trying to find more information to confirm this or prove me wrong. Happy to say I was right.
“Since I’ve never designed a hat before, I was afraid she wouldn’t be able to walk. I did have an idea that involved people with sticks holding it up, walking behind her. I didn’t know how far I could go with this thing.”
On the photo below you can see what was inside the headpiece. Blue iris with translucent glittery black eye.
The masks are director Baz Luhrmann and his wife, Catherine Martin works of art.
And the dress with the chandelier like crystal skirt…
… Gagita wore was designed by Miuccia Prada.
If you loved any of these works of art, I have a good news for you. MOCA is proud to offer these extraordinary MOCA NEW objects, in addition to the exquisite masks and costumes worn by the Bolshoi Ballet dancers, in the MOCA online auction. All proceeds will support the museum’s exhibition and education programs. Online bidding will close on Monday, November 30, 2009, at 11:59pm.
