Kate Me or Hate Me

Charming guests of the presentation

From May 31 until June 4 Moscow Art Center (in Neglinnaya) hosted an original exhibition Kate me or Hate me, the exhibition of attitudes. The concept was quite unusual. All the works were devoted to supermodel Kate Moss, who is considered by the coordinators to be the symbol of the generation. Maxim Agakhanov, the initiator of the project, gave his explanation: The image of Kate Moss did not only influence developments of fashion business, but the whole contemporary culture. Kate Moss is a rare guest in Moscow and hardly anyone in Russia has seen her alive. Thats why I asked the participants to express their attitude to Kate instead of just making her portraits. Many celebrities of Russian fashion, along with DJs and artists, agreed to share their attitude (Dmitry Loginov, Denis Ponarin, Anna Vsesvyatskaya, etc). The objects exhibited were dresses, sketches, portraits, etc. The core of it all was the presentation of the clothes TOPSHOP designed by Kate herself. The collection went on sale only on June 1st, so the exhibition had the exclusive chance to be the first to show it in Russia. Though Kate Moss did not show up at the opening as expected, her representative chose five art works for her private collection. The opening was attended by a young crowd of fashion aficionados, designers and the Moscow hip crowd.
