LIMEDROP INTERVIEW: Paola Di Trocchio July 01 2014
Today Limedrop had the pleasure of speaking with Paola Di Trocchio. Q&A with Paola. Who are you? What do you do/ believe in? My name is Paola Di Trocchio. I am a Curator of Fashion and Textiles at the National Gallery of Victoria. I believe fashion has the ability to tell us about ourselves. What your top two tips in putting together the perfect exhibition? 1. Thorough historical research, because it tells you about the objects you are displaying and because really interesting ideas often come from the objects themselves. 2. Having a thesis or argument to communicate through your selection and presentation of objects. What is something that you never thought would be possible that is now possible? That I would be a curator of the forthcoming exhibition, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, especially when Mr Gaultier said he would never do an exhibition. But he has!
