Madonna lingerie for 2014 Barbican season
Causing intense excitement the corset and conical bra Madonna wore for her 1990 world tour will go on display at London's Barbican Centre following year as part of an eclectic 2014 season.
The lingerie will be in an exhibition of designs by Jean-Paul Gaultier, who created them for Madonna's Blond Ambition tour as well as stagewear for Kylie Minogue and costumes for the films of Pedro Almodovar and Luc Besson's The Fifth Element. The Barbican lineup will be inclusive of a look at the impact of digital technology on the arts and culture, a play based on a book by Colm Toibin and the venue's more traditional fare of symphony concerts as well as recitals and film.
Barbican managing director Nicholas Kenyon expressed at a news conference on Tuesday that visitors to the famous brutalist-architecture arts-cum-housing complex in north-east London for the first time topped one million for the 2012-2013 season.
