Haven’t been here for a good looong time. Not the best excuse, but work kinda took my whole summer and tried to enjoy as much as I could the moments off work.
For example, recently I finally managed to go to National Portrait Gallery in Trafalgar Square to see Michael Jackson exhibition – ”On the wall” . It was an exhibition I couldn’t miss.!!In the first place because,hey, we are talking about Michael Jackson here, the king of pop. Also, BOSS sponsorships this event and of ocurse, as being part of this BOSS family I was really curious.
Second reason but not the last: because I start beeing part of the event once I had the pleasure to style some of the special guests, celebrities invited for the opening day. Was really interesting to work with them and discover their view over the outfit that each one of them wanted to wear. Have to say thay being a personal stylist I super enjoyed.
Back to the exhibition, it’s a must see! Will take like an hour and a half if you spend time reading and absorbing as much info as you can, but I guarantee is worth going there. You can do this until 21 October 2018 and is open daily from 10am until 6pm and on Friday until 9pm.
This exhibition explores the influence of Michael Jackson on some of the leading names in contemporary art, across few generations of artists and was opened to coincide with what would have been Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday ( on 29 August 2018). Michael Jackson: On the wall brings together the work of more than 40artists, pieces from public or private collections around the world, together with some new works created especially for this event.
Has a special importance for me as there is a room about Romania and Michael Jackson’ s concert in 1992. I was just 5 years old at that moment and lived in a communist country until 1990. I was not one of the people that attended the concert, unfortunately. He was the first worldwide magastar that had a concert in Bucharest after Revolution and this was a big thing for Romania. People from all over the country came to the capital for him. Around 10.000 fans made “23August” stadium ( now National Stadium) to seem way too small for this huge event. Videos from that day show people crying of excitement and happiness because they are living that moment. Wish I was there!
Well, hope that I made you curious enough to go an see the exhibition and also the videos from his concert in Bucharest. Here is one of the them
And just few pics from the exhibition:
Enjoy the visit and feel free to write me and tell me about your experience and what did you feel being there or even listening again Michael Jackson.
Untill my next post, stay happy!!!
