Lara Baldi

Miss Dior

Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing.

From 30 April 2015

 

In 2013, Lara Baladi  was commissioned by Dior to create an artwork for this touring exhibition. Titled after Josephine Baker's song, Don't touch Me Tomatoes & Chachacha, Baladi's video and surround sound installation, was inspired by the 2011 Egyptian revolution and its aftermath and by Christian Dior' s quote on how he created the perfume Miss Dior. 

 

The exhibition was first shown at Le Grand Palais, Paris (2013) and has toured to Sculpture Space, Shanghai (2014).
