About Leigh Bowery


Fergus Greer, Leigh Bowery Session I, Look 2, November 1988, from the series Leigh Bowery looks


The legendary story of Leigh Bowery (1961-1994), one of the most influential personas of the 20th century, is hosted by Camera 16 Contemporary Art in Milan. Through the images of the internationally famous photographers Fergus Greer and Johnny Rozsa, the life of  this avant-garde artist, performer and fashion designer becomes alive again, bringing up memories of the glamorous 80’s era and his protest against standardization and conservatism. Bowery’s unique transgender style and artistic concepts are among the most recognizable with a great impact on the visuality of fashion and has influenced the work of many people like Lucian Freud, Boy George, Anthony & The Johnson and David LaChapelle.

The exhibition will last from the 9th of February to the 31st of March
