Space Oddities Overexposed in Glass Cases

Visitors at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday, March 25, found Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton on display lying on a mattress in a glass box. The description card that accompanies the performance art piece, “The Maybe,” reads: “Living artist, glass, steel, mattress, pillow, linen, water and spectacles.” Swinton will perform the piece periodically throughout the year, and in accordance with the concept of the exhibit, with no published schedule of dates or times.

Following the release of The Next Day, David Bowie’s first studio album release in a decade, the Victoria & Albert Museum of London partnered with Gucci to present “David Bowie Is.” The international retrospective of over 300 items features original costumes, album cover art, performance videos, and photography to showcase the career of the artist. Bowie’s creative process is exemplified through the display of never-before-seen items like diaries, hand-written lyrics, and sketches. The exhibition will run March 23- Aug. 11.

Photographer Kevin Tachman captures the fast-paced fashion world in his “Overexposed” feature for Vogue.com. Tachman captures scenes from backstage and on the runway at shows like Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, and Lanvin and utilizes the multiple exposure technique to overlap the images. The resulting photographs portray the chaos and beauty surrounding the month of New York, London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks.
