If there is an item in our wardrobe that certainly defines our personal image, this is the shoe. Sometimes we look for them to be comfortable or practical and others elegant, modern, unique or even artistic and magical.
Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe at Brooklyn Museum takes us on a journey through more than 160 of the most representative art works in shoe’s history –from 16th century to Louboutin or Blahnik– and transports us to different territories for exploration, sophistication and fantasy.
Whether or not you’re a lover of heels, this exhibition curated by Art Historian specializing in 19th Century European Painting and Sculpture, Lisa Small, really allures you by the beautiful selection of experimental designs –divided into six thematic sections– and their relation with art and socio-cultural interests. Visually stunning!
