Kylie: The Exhibition - Victoria and Albert Museum
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
IN A departure from normal, the Victoria and Albert Museum is dedicating an entire exhibition to Australian singer, Kylie Minogue. Entitled simply Kylie: The Exhibition, it will run from February 8 to June 10, 2007.
Two hundred objects, including 60 photographs and 45 costumes will chart Kylie’s career and changing image.
Visitors can, therefore, expect to see the overalls she wore as a young actress playing Charlene in Neighbours, plus the gold lame hotpants she wore as an international pop star in the Spinning Around video in the year 2000.
And as well as hats by Stephen Jones and costumes from recent tours, the exhibition will also examine life behind the scenes and give visitors an insight into how a major international tour develops – from initial concept to first live performance.
Kylie: The Exhibition will be created and designed by the Arts Centre in Melbourne, home to Australia’s largest performing arts archive which includes material donated by the young artist herself.
Admission will be free. However entry numbers are limited and it is recommended that you book in advance.
