After stints in Shanghai, Düsseldorf, Milan, Tokyo and Berlin, the exhibition is set to run at the Ruarts Foundation for contemporary art in the Russian capital from Saturday until Nov. 30.
It will feature art works inspired by the Lady Dior handbag by Olympia Scarry, Recycle Group and Peter Lindbergh, alongside new works by Nevine Mahmoud, Cristina de Middel and Jim Goldberg.
In addition, Dior has commissioned seven Russian artists to reinterpret the bag: Daniil Antropov, Anastasia Prahova, 01001011 Studio, Alexander Yegorov, 0331C, Dasha Trofimova and Alexey Kiselev. In all, the Moscow exhibition will feature more than 90 works ranging from sculpture to photographs.
