Dame Vivienne Westwood: Get a Life


Dallas Contemporary

Dallas Contemporary is pleased to announce two solo exhibitions, recognizing fashion pioneers Vivienne Westwood and Paolo Roversi, and their impact on the creative fields and culture at large.

Dame Vivienne Westwood’s immersive exhibition Get A Life! Featuring a collection of runway looks and artworks through the lens of activism, this will be the first exhibition in the U.S. focused on Vivienne Westwood’s fight against climate change. 
Get a Life! will showcase how Westwood has spent many years tirelessly speaking out about the effects of climate change and over-consumption, mobilizing change through thought-provoking campaigns, ecological crusading and ethically focused design collaborations. The “Made in Kenya” accessory collection, created through the Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI) of the International Trade Centre – a joint body of the United Nations (UN) and the World Trade Organization (WTO), promoted the growth of sustainable business in place of aid dependency for marginalized African communities and will be featured at the center of the exhibition in the form of a tree installation made from reclaimed wood. The ground- breaking “Save the Arctic” campaign, launched in support of Greenpeace’s global call to action, will also be highlighted in the exhibition: the photographic installation, captured by Andy Gotts MBE, will present over 60 celebrities including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella McCartney and Hugh Grant all wearing the graphic t-shirt designed by Vivienne Westwood as part of the global crusade to protect the Arctic environment. Exemplifying Vivienne Westwood’s work against climate change, it will be central to Dallas Contemporary’s exhibition. 

Concurrently, Dallas Contemporary will present Birds, which will examine Paolo Roversi’s photographic works and his longstanding and highly creative relationship with Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons.

Both Vivienne Westwood and Paolo Roversi will be celebrated at Dallas Contemporary’s annual gala, held on March 28, 2020, raising funds for the institution’s ambitious and cutting-edge programming. The exhibitions which will be on view March 29 through August 23. Accompanying the shows will be a series of public programs, many of which will be shared online: dallascontemporary.org/events
