Marlene Dietrich: Vestida para la Imagen

16 de junio de 2017 - 15 de abril de 2018
Segundo piso

Marlene Dietrich brought androgyny to the silver screen through her roles in such movies as Morocco (1930) and Seven Sinners (1940). The biggest Hollywood star at a time when “talkies” were still new, Dietrich captured men’s hearts and women’s admiration on screen and off.

Dietrich challenged the strictly limited notions of femininity at the time through her lifestyle and fashion: “I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men.” Relying on her good looks, striking voice, sense of humor and no-nonsense personality, Dietrich achieved international fame during her long career.

Muchos honores de Dietrich incluyen la Medalla de la Libertad por su servicio entreteniendo a las tropas estadounidenses por 18 meses durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, a menudo en el frente de batalla. La estrella nacida en Alemania sigue siendo un símbolo de la lucha contra el Nazismo, un icono de la moda y una figura influyente de la comunidad LGBTQ.


Marlene Dietrich: Dressed for the Image was organized in cooperation with Deutsche Kinemathek – Marlene Dietrich Collection Berlin.
 
This exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of Tom L. Pegues and Donald A. Capoccia.  Additional support received from the American Portrait Gala Endowment.
 

La historiadora de la Galería de Retratos Kate C. Lemay es la curadora de esta exhibición.
