The distinctive and atmospheric paintings of the German artist Neo Rauch (born 1960) defy easy interpretation, falling somewhere between Surrealism and popular imagery. At once familiar yet alienating, seemingly full of activity yet emotionally static, Rauch's large-format pictures combine real, narrative and dreamlike elements, and transport the viewer into bizarre landscapes populated with semi-recognizable figures and strange beings. This vital collection of recent paintings offers an incomparable insight into the influential artist and his exploration of a parallel world where the normal is mixed freely with the absurd and the paradoxical to create works of art that are fantasy represented as fact.

The last decade has seen the growing popularity and visibility of fashion as a cultural product, including its growing presence in museum exhibitions. This book explores the history of fashion displays, highlighting the continuity of past and present curatorial practices. Comparing and contrasting exhibitions from different museums and decades-from the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900 to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011, and beyond-it makes connections between museum fashion and the wider fashion industry. By critically analyzing trends in fashion exhibition practice over the 20th and early 21st centuries, Julia Petrov defines and describes the varied representations of historical fashion within British and North American museum exhibitions. Rooted in extensive archival research on exhibitions by global leaders in the field-from the Victoria and Albert and the Bath Fashion Museum to the Brooklyn and the Royal Ontario Museums-the work reveals how fashion exhibitions have been shaped by the values and anxieties associated with fashion more generally. Supplemented by parallel critical approaches, including museological theory, historiography, body theory, material culture, and visual studies, Fashion History in the Museum demonstrates that in an increasingly corporate and mass-mediated world, fashion exhibitions must be analysed in a comparative and global context. Richly illustrated with 70 images, this book is essential reading for students and scholars of fashion history and museology, as well as curators, conservators, and exhibition designers.
