Esteemed Parisian imprint A.P.C. is holding an exhibition titled “ARCHIVES” at Paris’ Joyce Gallery, showcasing a history of Jean Touitou-designed garments dating back to its founding years.

A.P.C. is known for its perfected approach to minimalism, yet chooses to highlight its archives in a chromatic color-ordered display which reflects the label’s more exuberant moments. This method creates a rainbow of A.P.C. clothing, and as Touitou states in a press release, “In a way, this type of painting is a restricted exercise, because it must suggest reality in a fantasized version.”

The illogically-organized display is complemented by walls that are designed and painted by frequent A.P.C. collaborator Jessica Ogden, reflected the chromatic order of each archival section. Ogden is known for her collaborative quilts that are made from leftover A.P.C. fabrics, and this patchwork approach is reflected in the geometric patterns found on each wall.

A.P.C. “ARCHIVES” at Joyce Gallery will be on show until January 31, 2020. It will run in conjunction with the A.P.C. Café that is on the same site.

In other news, you can now experience Centre Pompidou’s Francis Bacon exhibition in a 100-second video.
