Before instantaneous access to fashion shows via livestreaming and social media, London-based artist Robert Fairer was backstage photographing the designers, models, hair and makeup artists, stylists, and others working in crowded spaces at a frenetic pace moments before the final looks were presented. Backstage Pass: Dior, Galliano, Jacobs, and McQueen captures the zeitgeist of the turn of the 21st-century, an era of artistic zenith in runway show production by the house of Dior, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen. The exhibition draws from Fairer’s prolific body of work that includes hundreds of thousands of images, and was curated in close collaboration with the artist and his wife, Vanessa.
