The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined

Examining good and bad taste hrough the ages at the Vienna's Winter Palace.

The exhibition The Vulgar- Fashion Redefined, curated and organised by the Barbican Center, London, explores the challenging yet compelling territory of taste in fashion.  Showcasing objects spanning the Renaissance to the 21st century, the exhibition at Vienna’s Winter Palace seeks to stimulate discussion around the definition of the word ‘vulgar’. Working with the thesis that (good) taste is purely a matter of opinion, the exhibit showcases historic dress, couture, and ready-to-wear fashion, juxtaposed with textile samples, manuscripts, photography, and film, illustrating how taste is a mobile concept. Don’t miss the tours and talks from the side programme too!
