Expo Marilyn Die Starke Monroe du 26/03 au 01/11/2015

expo-the_strength-1

Cette exposition de la collection de Ted Stampfler est une reprise de l'expo de 2014 Private Marilyn qui avait eu lieu en Suisse. Il y est présenté cette fois-ci près de 400 objets personnels ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe au Liechtenstein (entre la Suisse et l'Autriche).
L’exposition se penche sur la question de l’émancipation de la femme dans les années 50 à l’exemple de la femme la plus photographiée du XXe siècle: l’actrice, chanteuse et icône de la mode Marilyn Monroe. Elle présente la forte personnalité de cette femme exceptionnelle qui, 53 ans après sa mort, n’a rien perdu de la fascination qu’elle suscite et dont l’influence sur la société est encore perceptible aujourd’hui.
Le Musée national du Liechtenstein présente 400 objets qui proviennent initialement de sa succession et font actuellement partie de la collection privée Ted Stampfer, la plus grande collection de ce genre regroupant des objets ayant appartenu à Marilyn Monroe.
On peut y voir des vêtements luxueux, des accessoires personnels, des produits de beauté et de coiffure, des accessoires de cinéma, des documents privés, des films et des photos dont la présentation, dans cette constellation, est une première mondiale. Des objets prêtés par des collectionneurs du monde entier viennent compléter cette collection.
Les visiteurs plongent dans le monde de Marilyn et traversent chronologiquement les stades les plus importants de son évolution et les périodes déterminantes de sa vie. Ils découvrent des objets uniques qui témoignent de la vie et de l’œuvre de cette femme exceptionnelle tout en révélant son identité de femme émancipée. Pour cela, l’exposition s’intéresse aussi bien à l’évolution physique de Marilyn et au rôle qu’elle fait jouer à son corps, qu’à la manière très personnelle dont elle se rebelle contre une industrie cinématographique dominée par les hommes. Grâce à sa hardiesse, elle obtiendra entre autres de meilleures conditions contractuelles et des droits de codécision, mais pourra aussi fonder sa propre société de production cinématographique, ce qui lui assurera une plus grande indépendance.
Un catalogue éponyme accompagnant l’exposition est en vente dans la boutique du musée au prix de 20.00 CHF, ainsi que différentes autres publications.
Directeur général: Directeur Prof. Dr. Rainer Vollkommer

> article de l'expo sur PR Newswire :
The special exhibition presents the emancipation of women in the 1950s through the example of the most photographed woman of the 20th century -- the actress, singer and style icon, Marilyn Monroe.
The exhibition here focuses on the strength behind the exceptional phenomenon who, even 53 years after her death in 1962, has not lost her charm and influence, which in society and the women's movement to this day is palpable.
Presented are more than 400 selected pieces from the private collection of Ted Stampfer, the world's largest collection of Marilyn Monroe originals of its kind. Through his willingness to present his collection in exhibitions, the art collector and expert wants not only to remember the actress, who was intellectually underestimated during her lifetime and reduced by filmmakers and media to her visual appeal, but also to make exhibit attendees aware of the clever and ambitious businesswoman. Most of the pieces originate from her estate, of which the items were stored after Marilyn Monroe's death in August 1962, until 1999, until large portions of it were put up for auction with auction houses like Christie's and Julien's. The exhibition is rounded out by individual pieces from other international collectors.
Uniquely designed and seen for the first time worldwide, the National Museum in Liechtenstein thus enables its exhibition visitors to dive into Monroe's world. Visitors walk through the most important chronological development stages of her life, and can view special exhibits that not only give a glimpse into her life and the work of this extraordinary woman, but also highlight her emancipated side. These include: high-quality articles of clothing; accessories; beauty, skincare and styling products; personal and film company documents; film props; and extensive photo and film footage presented by means of electronic media.
The exhibition, however, is not just focused on presenting personal belongings from a late actress. Rather, it focuses more on the unknown private person -- the real face behind the Hollywood icon. Thus, it gives an intimate look at the real person behind the fictional persona Marilyn Monroe. Using examples, visitors learn about an ambitious woman of the 1940s and 1950s, who, despite the prevailing gender roles of her time, reached her own set goals gradually and with great confidence.
Adressed is on the one hand, the outward makeover of a natural brunette girl, who became with the conscious use of her body the most desirable woman in the world. This is, for example, demonstrated with the original false eyelashes, various containers of makeup, articles and accessories used as highlights for her hair styling, which were significantly involved in the transformation process. But also Marilyn's favorite clothing is presented, including her white and checkered capri pants, which she liked to combine with a black turtleneck sweater. She wore them both in her private life as well as in important photo shoots (for example in the famous shoots with photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt and Milton Greene). These iconic photographs today show us not only a timeless beauty, but a self-confident woman, who was well aware of her own charisma.
In addition, the exhibition also highlights the public person and reports about the strong side of a woman who had to compete in a man's world in the 1950s. There are character traits and self-confident behavior demonstrated, which culminated at the height of Monroe's career to rebel against the male-dominated film industry. This courageous behavior led to, among other things, better contract terms and the ability to have more say over her career, plus to establishing her own film production company -- another way she became more independent. The exhibition presents original costumes, film props and important documents on the films that were produced by Monroe herself.
Besides the interest in her own career and her personal advancement, Marilyn Monroe was also involved in helping the disadvantaged and minorities. This is illustrated with the example of Ella Fitzgerald, the famous African-American jazz singer, for whom Monroe actively campaigned to obtain engagements in a hip nightclub that was typically reserved for white artists. Fitzgerald later reported that Monroe's influence and active action were instrumental in her international success as a singer.
The exhibition offers in all its aspects a comprehensive view of the strong-willed character of a woman who was ahead of her time. And it also reveals to the visitor that Marilyn Monroe, by her behavior in different ways, exerted a formative influence on the emancipation of women, making her one of the most important cultural and historical figures of the 20th century.

Tailored Dress - de We're not married

Tailored Dress
from 'We're not married' 

robe tailleur portée dans le film
"Cinq mariages à l'essai"

elois_jenssen-1952-08-visit_children_hospital-1 

 Cette robe tailleur a été conçue par la costumière de cinéma et de télévision Elois Jenssen pour le film We're not married tourné au début de l'année 1952. Cette longue robe de style tailleur est de couleur beige très clair, boutonnée au buste jusqu'au bassin par huits gros boutons foncés qui contrastent avec le tissu clair de la robe; ainsi que des larges bandes de garnitures en pointillées au niveau du décolleté et des poches; avec une jupe droite faussement fendue au milieu sur le devant, suivant une ligne de tissu replié.

La robe est accessoirisée par deux éléments: d'abord, la fine ceinture blanche nouée à la taille; puis le court boléro sans manche au col montant à la nuque, et du même design que la robe (même couleur, et avec une large bande de pointillés au niveau du col et des emmanchures). Marilyn Monroe fit des essais de test costumes avec cette tenue le 11 janvier 1952 , portant la robe tantôt sans le boléro, tantôt avec, mais accompagnée d'un petit chapeau blanc se portant à l'arrière de la tête et contenant une grande plume à l'horizontal. Cependant, la tenue restera dans les placards, car elle n'a finalement pas été retenue pour les costumes du film et Marilyn ne porte pas cette robe dans le film.

Le 12 février 1952, Marilyn se rend à UCLA , l'Université de Californie à Los Angeles, pour un reportage photographique qui paraîtra dans le magazine Movies Day à l'automne 1952. Et pour l'occasion, elle choisit de porter la robe tailleur avec la veste.

1951_ucla_a_2bday_2ba_2bserie_4  1951_ucla_1a  1951_ucla_5 


Entre fin août et début septembre 1952, Marilyn est à Atlantic City pour promouvoir la sortie du film Monkey Business. Durant son séjour, elle en profite pour visiter un hôpital pour enfants le 30 août 1952. Et pour cette occasion, elle porte la robe tailleur qui a suivi quelques modifications: la longueur a été relevée (la robe est légèrement plus courte) et surtout, elle a été fendue sur le devant. Marilyn ne porte pas la ceinture, mais elle a accessoirisée sa tenue en portant de petits gants blancs afin d'accentuer le côté chic de la tenue.

Pale Turquoise Silk Suit - de Niagara

Pale Turquoise Silk Suit
from 'Niagara' 

tailleur en soie de couleur turquoise pâle
porté dans le film 'Niagara'

tailleur_bleu_1952_05_21_a 

tailleur_bleu_1952_05_21_bCet ensemble tailleur jupe veste a été conçu par la célèbre costumière de cinéma, Dorothy Jeakins pour le film Niagara tourné l'été 1952 à la frontière canadienne. Dorothy Jeakins s'occupa de tous les costumes du film. Marilyn Monroe fit les essais de test costumes le 21 mai 1952 (voir photo ci-contre).
C'est une tenue moderne et classique à la fois, très près du corps, à la veste cintrée et dont la jupe, longue, dessine parfaitement les courbes de Marilyn. Elle porte la tenue avec des sandales ouvertes blanches.
Il semblerait qu'elle ne porte pas de chemisier sous la veste, mais peut-être est-elle en soutien-gorge ou a-t-elle un fin corsage ?!

Dans Niagara, Marilyn porte ce tailleur dans une courte scène où son personnage Rose Loomis, femme fatale énigmatique, sort de son bungalow et salue ses voisins, les époux Cutler. On ne la voit donc avec cette tenue que brièvement, marchant d'un pas alerte et déterminé.
Il existe une série de photographies de Marilyn prises sur le tournage portant ce tailleur, où on la découvre consciensieuse et concentrée auprès de Jean Peters, révisant ses scènes. Puis, elle va aussi poser pour des portraits publicitaires du film, assise sur un muret devant les fameuses chutes du Niagara.

Marilyn va ensuite emprunter la robe, pour la porter le 26 juin 1952 à la cour de justice de Los Angeles, dans un procès qui l'opposait à Kaupman et Kaplen, qui avait utilisé son nom pour vendre des photos de nus.

Le tailleur avait ensuite été récupéré (racheté sans doute à un petit prix) par l'actrice Debbie Reynolds, qui organisa, le 3 décembre 2011, une vente aux enchères où elle revendait une grande partie de sa collection d'objets et de costumes de cinéma.
Le tailleur, mis à prix à 80 000 Dollars, fut vendu pour la somme de 210 000 Dollars.

Lot n°148: costume de Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
A "must have" for any serious collector of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, offered here is a peach satin leotard with fishnet overlay and a pair of peach satin gloves with rhinestones, worn by none other than the legendary Marilyn Monroe herself as Lorelei Lee in the 1953 classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Created by famed costume designer Travilla, outfits such as this leotard created a great controversy at the time of the film's release since it was considered too revealing for major stars as Monroe to wear. Ultimately, it was Monroe's ability and willingness to wear such outfits that made her perhaps the greatest sex symbol in the history of motion pictures! An official 20th Century Fox sewn-in wardrobe label on the inside lining of the leotard reads, "20th Century Fox, Marilyn Monroe."
