Richard Avedon – Perth Fashion Festival

Friday 1st August / presented by Ronan Lane

You may think fashion, you may think glamour when you hear the name Richard Avedon.

Right now at the Art Gallery of WA, you can see portraits of the famous and not-so famous faces, showing how Avedon’s work goes well beyond glossy shots for magazines and into social commentary and documenting cultural change.

Assembled by the National Portrait Gallery’s Senior Curator, Dr Christopher Chapman, in partnership with the Richard Avedon Foundation, the People exhibition shows 81 works from the archive, many of which have rarely been seen before.

Dr Chapman and Katrina Dumas – Exhibition Coordinator from the Richard Avedon Foundation in New York spoke to RTRFM presenter Ronan Lane.
