50 Masks Made In America at Please Do Not Enter / by Shasin-Bu

"Please Do Not Enter is proud to present the first Los Angeles exhibition of Belgian artist, former milliner, and fashion icon, Christophe Coppens. Christophe has previously worked with several celebrities as Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Grace Jones, Beth Ditto, Roisin Murphy or the Belgian Royal Family..."

"50 Masks Made in America", will feature 50 new, mixed-media sculptural masks, made by hand especially for the exhibition by the now Los Angeles-based Christophe Coppens. These wearable objects are informed by the artist's unique background at the intersection of couture and performance, and present surreal observations and commentary on his recent relocation to Los Angeles from a European perspective. Racism, politics, dreams and nightmares inspired by American Culture and Society will be the focus of his works.

"50 masks made in America" is the second project produced by Please Do Not Enter, following the internationally celebrated "Projection" on Sunset Boulevard, by Vincent Lamouroux in April 2015. It's also one of our most ambitious exhibitions since we launched that one-of-a-kind curated store two years ago. As aesthetically ambitious as meaningful, the show is fiercely expected by both the Fashion and the Art Scenes.
