David Lachapelle Retrospective


Popping over to Paris last week ‘i-am’ couldn’t resist the David Lachapelle showcase. Love him or hate
him you just cant ignore him; David Lachapelle’s catalogue of work is enormous and diverse and this is the first time you can see a retrospective of over 200 pieces all in one place.

The Monnaie de Paris plays host to the exhibition, which houses works ranging from his latest distopian ‘anti-commodity art’ to some of his better known celebrity portraits including the renowned ‘Hi Bitch, Bye Bitch’ Paris Hilton portrait.

Films documenting the installation play throughout taking us on a journey from his earlier poppier pieces
to the latest distopian commentary works such as ‘Holy War; a post-apocalyptic,homo-erotic
mashup…no really! The retrospective runs till June and its one experience not to miss…
