A nice pair of heels: is it just a fashion statement or is it an art form? To answer that question we take you to the Brooklyn Museum of art, NYC, where there’s an art exhibition titled: Killer Heels!

This show has everything you would expect in a run-of-the-mill art show. It has artifacts aka shoes, from the most famous fashion and design houses right besides sketches, stills, drawings and paintings of shoes. Not just that the show also features some short documentaries and films from popular film makers, like Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh, Zach Gold, Steven Klein, Nick Knight, Marilyn Minter and Rashaad Newsome.

You would naturally expect a show like this one to transcend time, and it did. The show not only featured popular contemporary shoe designers like Christian Louboutin, Zaha Hadid, Pierre Hardy and Brian Atwood; it also had some Venetian era shoes and platforms.

Interesting, don’t you think? Don’t just go off. The show has more…

Killer Heels explores the rich cultural history of high-heel shoes and their charisma, power, audacity and not to forget their sexuality. Some of the shoes in the art show are crafted from the most exclusive materials, fabrics and the like. Take a close look at the samples, you would agree that the designers are engaged in a power play with style, designs and sexuality and have successfully pushed the boundaries of common norms with their collection exclusively for the sake of art.
