Rodarte at Museum of Contemporary Art

On Saturday a couple of us Seychelles girls headed over to MOCA's Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood to view Rodarte: States of Matter. Although a very small exhibit, it did not disappoint. States of Matter showcases the original ballet costumes worn in the film Black Swan, plus select pieces from Rodarte's Spring 2010, Fall 2010 and Fall 2008 runway collections.

The exhibit was beautiful and haunting. Exhibition designer Alexandre de Betak did a brilliant job of lighting. The gallery showing the black swan costumes were filled with an eery red light, while the gallery featuring the white swan costumes flickered with strobes, obstructing the viewer's vision and creating a sense of anxiety reminiscent of the film.

Rodarte: States of Matter is on view at the Pacific Design Center through June 5. We highly recommend you stop by.
