Hamish Bowles, international editor-at-large of Vogue, New York, will present a free lecture entitled "Balenciaga and Spain." This lecture is presented in conjunction with the special exhibition "Balenciaga in Black." Happy Hour in the Pavilion Café, with half-priced drinks and light snacks, will precede the lecture.

Cristóbal Balenciaga was born in Guetara, a Spanish fishing village, in 1895, and died in Valencia in 1972. Although his career was spent in Paris, he never left his Spanish heritage behind. In this lecture, Bowles will discuss the impact of Balenciaga's native Spain, its regional dress, cultural and religious traditions and powerful artistic history, on the couturier's work, exploring how Balenciaga translated these influences into his designs, both overtly and subliminally, through the decades. Bowles will touch on his own experiences curating two monographic exhibitions on the designer, his discoveries tracing the designer's personal history in Spain and his own collection of Balenciaga works.
