June 20 – July 20, 2014. Shanghai Sculpture Space, Shanghai, China

After its first installation at Grand Palais in Paris in 2013, the Miss Dior exhibition blending its heritage with modern and contemporary works of art makes a summer stop in Shanghai.

Chinese artist Liu Lijie joins the collection of 15 creations by women artists from around the world to interpret the different codes of the iconic Miss Dior perfume.

The exhibition, held in a key location on the new Chinese contemporary art scene, welcomed 80,000 visitors in 4 weeks.

On this occasion, Dior wanted to enrich the presentation of its heritage and share with its Chinese public new dresses such as the Jour de Fête dress from 1955, the Music dress from 1956, and the Mirror dresses designed by Raf Simons for the Spring-Summer 2014 Ready-to-Wear collection. The House of Dior now has 19 of these dresses in the exhibition, along with new drawings and sketches, all so refined. The presentation of modern works has also been enriched with the addition of a collection by Christian Bérard, a series of watercolors by Yves Tanguy and a new Dali entitled Le Spectre de l’Angelus.
