Barbie

Following Lego, it’s now Barbie’s turn to be at the centre of an exhibition organised at Arts décoratifs de Paris.

From Thursday 10 March to Sunday 18 September 2016

Les Arts décoratifs

So why shouldn’t Barbie be entitled to her moment of glory in a museum? Things are changing today, with the opening of “Barbie”, an exhibition organised at Arts décoratifs which is fully dedicated to the doll who was created in 1959. This is the first time that Barbie has been the object of a real exhibition.

To achieve this, les Arts décoratifs looks at the unpublished archives of the American toy company Mattel. First of all, this exhibition aims to regard this iconic object as a children’s toy which brings good luck and lets one learn about fashionable clothing. It then tries to locate Barbie in a cultural and social history of toys in the 20th and 21st centuries. After all, Barbie is not just a toy. She is a reflection of an era: of its social, political, cultural and moral (r)evolutions, and that’s why she’s worth this tribute.
