GQ presents “Man In Progress” exhibition at the Museo del Traje, Madrid

GQ Spain celebrates its 20-year anniversary with an exhibition that aims to cast a light on how men’s style has evolved over the course of the last 20 years. Titled “Man In Progress”, the exhibition raises questions about male identity and its relation to fashion, featuring a wide selection of exclusive garments and accessories that have made history, among them Tom Ford’s tuxedo for Daniel Craig’s 007 movie “Quantum of Solace” (2008), the Dolce & Gabbana polka-dotted suit that Lionel Messi whore when he received the 2012 Golden Ball award in Zurich, Andres Velencoso’s suit from Louis Vuitton’s fall 2003 campaign with Jennifer Lopez, and Adrien Brody’s double-breasted red coat from Prada’s a/w 2012 runway show.

On view there is also an amazing matador jacket, courtesy of renowned bullfighter Miguel Angel Perera, a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo’s shoes that belonged to Andy Warhol, as well as a selection of hard-to-find Manolo Blahnik’s shoes for men. The fashion pieces are juxtaposed with a series of spectacular photos, taken out from GQ’s extensive archive, by artists like Paolo Roversi, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Sebastian Kim, Giampaolo Sgura, Peggy Sirota, Tony Kelly, Eugenio Recuenco and Javier Salas. GQ Spain wanted to pay tribute to “all the designers, fashion houses and photographers” that have accompanied them throughout the last two decades, and at the same time allude to the spirit of “a man who keeps walking, a man in progress”. The exhibition, one of the few of its kind in Europe, is curated by Jose Luis Diez Garde and Marta Blanco and will be on view until November 3, 2014, at the Museo del Traje, Madrid.
