V&A to present Japanese Yohji Yamamoto work
Dec '10
The exhibition will also record the breadth of some of Yamamoto's key collaborations achieved through his career. Partnerships with fashion photographer Nick Knight, graphic designer Peter Saville, art director Marc Ascoli and M/M (Paris), choreographer Pina Bausch and filmmakers Takeshi Kitano and Win Wenders amongst many others, will be represented by a mixed-media timeline in the main exhibition space, and will demonstrate an important, creative dialogue which flows through his work. As homage to the catalogues and iconic images they produced for Yohji Yamamoto in the late 1980s, Peter Saville will be Graphic Art Director for the book and exhibition, and Nick Knight will produce the V&A poster image.

As part of the retrospective, Yamamoto's work stretches further across London with exhibitions at the Wapping Project sites, at both Bankside (11 March to 14 May 2011) and Wapping (11 March to 10 July 2011).

Yohji Yamamoto will be on display in the V&A's main exhibition court. A number of mannequins will also be found around the museum in the Dorothy & Michael Hintze Sculpture Galleries, Architecture Staircase, Leighton corridor, Tapestry Gallery, Norfolk House Music Room and the Medieval & Renaissance Galleries. The exhibition will run from 12 March until 10 July 2011.
