Musee Cognacq-Jay. Lumières : carte blanche à Christian Lacroix

Musée Cognacq-Jay is small museum in Paris, which collection was put together in the early 1900's and was focusing mainly on 18th century French work and rococo artists such as Watteau, Fragonard, Boucher. In 2015 the museum was reopenend after a long period of renovation. Fashion designer Christian Lacroix was given  free hands to curate the museum's collection and include works of his own and by his fellows, for example dresses by Vivienne Westwood and photos by Tim Walker. The result was an inspiring mash-up of 18th century's and contemporary art which all fit into the same mood.
