Irving Penn and Issey Miyake: Visual Dialogue


21_21 DESIGN SIGHT is pleased to announce a new exhibition, Irving Penn and Issey Miyake:

Visual Dialogue opening to the public on September 16, 2011. The exhibition will focus on the collaborative work of legendary photographer, Irving Penn and renowned designer, Issey Miyake. Issey Miyake’s first encounter with Irving Penn was in 1983. On assignment for American Vogue, Penn photographed Miyake’s clothing for an editorial feature. The perspective in these photographs startled Miyake as he suddenly saw his designs through a totally new set of eyes. As a direct result, Miyake asked Penn to photograph his designs. Over the next 13 years, from 1987 through the Autumn/Winter Collection of 1999, Irving Penn photographed the ISSEY MIYAKE line’s biennial collections. Miyake never attended the photo
sessions but instead chose to entrust the vision of his clothes entirely to Penn. The unusual decision to offer Penn complete freedom gave rise to an incredible “visual dialogue” between the two artists.

The creative pulse of Penn and Miyake’s unique collaboration had a lasting effect on their artistic visions. In the end, Penn made over 250 photographs of Miyake’s designs, many of which appear in collection posters, were published in art books, or exhibited in museums and cultural institutions.



Under the direction of Midori Kitamura, Miyake's trusted colleague, and an installation design by architect Shigeru Ban, the exhibition features both the individual and collaborative work of Irving Penn and Issey Miyake. In addition to large scale projections of collection photographs by Penn, an
animated film by Pascal Roulin with original drawings by Michael Crawford, and ISSEY MIYAKE collection posters exhibited collectively for the first time, original fine art prints made by Penn will also be on display as well as his preliminary drawings for photographing Miyake’s designs.

" Irving Penn
“Issey Miyake makes body covering that need the wearer to bring his designs into full existence. His inspirations draw from nature forms: shells, seaweed, stones. His materials are natural and traditional: paper, silk, cotton, bamboo. But occasionally he surprises with the use of plastic. His roots go deep in his culture. There are overtones of warriors, mythology and folk mysteries. His designs are not fashionable, but women of style are enriched by them and are made more beautiful by them.”
(From Issey Miyake: Photographs by Irving Penn, Little, Brown and Company, 1988)


" Issey Miyake
“I was looking for the one person who could look at my clothing, hear my voice, and answer me back through his own creation. I searched long for such a person and found in Penn-san. […] Through his eyes Penn-san reinterprets the clothes, gives them new breath, and presents them to me from a new vantage point — one that I may not have been aware of, but had been subconsciously trying to capture. Without Penn-san’s guidance, I probably could not have continued to find new themes with which to challenge myself, nor could I have arrived at new solutions.”
(From Irving Penn: A Career in Photography, The Art Institute of Chicago, 1997)
