Lee Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse
This exhibition soundtrack, created by Bárbara Salazar and Alejandro Cohen of dublab, reflect McQueen’s vast, eclectic, and at times unpredictable musical taste that defined his runway shows. The soundtrack’s jarring changes and contrasting choices aim to not only reflect on, but also provoke a conversation about the meaning of McQueen’s work in the context of our present times.
With selections that range from classical, to post punk, dance, and pop, Bárbara and Alejandro try to not only represent the artist’s choices but also respond to the legacy of his work.
