Gay Chic – from subculture to mainstream / Museum of Design Zurich

Gay Chic takes up a topical social subject. It looks at the way style and aesthetics from the homosexual subculture are affecting our everyday visual lives and setting trends. Our exhibition creates a visual dialogue showing how Gay Chic influences advertising, fashion, mass media, films and pop music, but also the significance of historical figures like the “dandy” and the fashionable “garçon” female type, alongside the artistic models.” (PR Museum of Design Zurich). Opening, Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, April 26, 2006.
