Dear Shaded Viewers,
With the new Audrey Hepburn Documentary coming soon I thought that I would re-post my visit to the ‘bespoke’ exhibition on her life and my meeting withher son Sean Hepburn Ferrer.
Re-post from June 2, 2019
Intimate Audrey is a ‘bespoke’ exhibition on the life of Audrey Hepburn created by her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, to celebrate her 90th birthday anniversary in her birth town of Brussels, Belgium. All of its profits will go to EURORDIS- Rare Diseases Europe and the Brugmann and Bordet hospitals in Brussels. Composed in large part of unpublished photographs, it focuses entirely on the woman – not the icon. It is the woman behind the legend who is ‘coming home’.
The exhibition, laid out over 800 square meters over the first 2 floors of the Vanderborght Building in Brussels includes several hundred original and re-printed photographs, a limited amount of memorabilia, dresses and accessories, as well as her never before seen fashion drawings and humanitarian writings. A series of poignant videos bring each of its chapters to life.
