Starting with its first showcase in Florence, the traveling exhibition has landed in Seoul, its sixth stop. As mentioned in Michele’s description of the exhibition, the immersive multimedia world is an “explicit journey” that explores the creative director’s vision.
Thirteen of the brand’s most visually striking advertising campaigns envisioned by Michele in his six and a half years at the helm of Gucci are on display at Dongdaemun Design Plaza. Each of the 14 rooms takes visitors on a trip to a breathtaking world, from Gucci‘s Fall-Winter 2015 campaign to the Spring-Summer 2020 campaign.
With cutting-edge technology and innovative interior designs, “Archetypes” features various stages including Paris, Los Angeles, the era of Northern soul in the late 1960s and the Paris riots of May 1968 with young people building mythical arks, space explorers, horses, angels and aliens. It showcases a variety of inspirational figures featured in Gucci’s campaigns.
The exhibition runs from this Friday to March 27 at the DDP Design Museum in central Seoul. It opens from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday to Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday to Sunday. Admission is free and online reservation through Naver is required. An online virtual tour is also available.
