Step into the 1800’s with the exclusive Alienist Exhibition at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills starting January 13th

Celebrate the new series premiering January 22nd on TNT with ‘The Alienist: From Sketchbook to Screen Exhibit’ that will feature costumes, photography, art pieces and more from the limited series. The exclusive Los Angeles display opens to the public on Saturday, January 13, 2018. Michael Kaplan the award winning costume designer who you ‘know’ from the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Blade Runner, Fight Club and Flashdance is taking us to the past from the Caleb Carr novel.

“Michael Kaplan is a spectacular costume designer and true master of his craft. As he’s done so brilliantly in features, Michael enriched the world of The Alienist with his unique vision and meticulous attention to detail,” said Michael Engleman, TNT’s EVP of Marketing and Brand Innovation. “We’ve been fortunate benefactors of his stunning work and are delighted to showcase it at the Paley Center.”

The inspiration behind The Alienist exhibit gives a glimpse of the abstracted architectural and environmental features that are represented throughout the scenography of the series filmed in eastern Europe. The concept focuses those themes on one dominant and dramatic idea – suspension – to showcase the Gilded Age costumes and books in a unique and intriguing way.

The Alienist will take visitors through the world of 1896 New York, a place where mystery lies beneath a glittering surface,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “It’s an honor to present this incredible exhibit that captures the mood of TNT’s highly anticipated new series.”

The Alienist is a psychological thriller set in the late 1800’s exploring the fledgling use of mental pathologists as they track the first known ritualist killer muddling young boys in New York City during the ‘Golden Age’. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl, Rush), a brilliant and obsessive “Alienist”, John Moore (Luke Evans) and Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning) are the trio out to unmask the fiend and prove the effectiveness of their research despite the police and powerful people who want to keep the evil quiet. The new series based on the award winning novel by Caleb Carr was filmed in Budapest, Hungary. The series was co-produced by Paramount Television and Turner’s Studio T. BAFTA-nominee Jakob Verbruggen (Black Mirror) serves as director and executive producer along with Emmy® winner Cary Fukunaga (True Detective), Academy Award® winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), Academy Award® nominees Hossein Amini (Drive) and E. Max Frye (Foxcatcher), Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Rosalie Swedlin, along with Chris Symes. Serving as co-executive producers on the series are Marshall Persinger (Rectify) and Jamie Payne (The Driver).

The Paley Center exhibit is free and open to the public that is part of an ongoing exhibit showcasing the artistry of the entertainment field. Guests are able to see behind the scenes of television series creative process.

 

The exhibit is free and open to the public on January 13, 2018, and will run through March 25, 2018, at the Paley Center’s Beverly Hills location (465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210).

Outlander fans head to Beverly Hills for the upcoming costume and set design exhibition at the Paley Center (Beverly Hills) and for a lucky few press people they get an early peek!  I’m hoping to attend and speak with Terry Dresbach and Jon Gary Steele on how the costumes and set designs are able to transport people to another time and place. In attendance of the opening preview and panel will be stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, Executive Producers Ronald D. Moore and Maril Davis and the panel will be moderated by Maureen Ryan, TV Critic, Variety.

I’ve spoke to fans of this beloved series inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander books and they are always ecstatic of how the TV series pays homage to her vision.

I had the pleasure to speak with Diana Gabaldon, Caitriona Balfe, Sam Geughan and Ronald Moore at SDCC last year. Fans were passionate about what was going on and looking forward to the new season as they explore Paris. I am very excited to see the costumes and set designs as a fashionista as well as a book lover. Often when we read the books we paint a picture in our minds of what it would look like in real life. When books are made into TV series at times fans get frustrated that it doesn’t live up to their imagination. But Terry and Jon Gary with the rest of the team have surpassed fans and kept them surprised and intrigued with the rich visual tapestry!

Now it’s LA’s turn to see the magic up close and personal thanks to Stars, Sony Picture Television and the Paley Center! Don’t forget to join the Paley Center for special membership benefits so that we can continue enjoying the history of television arts. 

Terry Dresbach, Emmy-winning costume designer of the Starz and Sony Pictures Television series Outlander creations will transport you to 18th century Paris society!  has taken the beauty of 18th century Parisian society. The exhibit will include set pieces from Jon Gary Steele, production designer, episodic photography and behind-the-secedes video segments of this visually sumptuous series.

Outlander: After serving as a British Amy nurse in World War II, Claire Randall is enjoying a second honeymoon in Scotland with husband Frank, an MI6 officer looking forward to a new career as an Oxford historian. Suddenly, Claire is transported to 1743 and into a mysterious world where her freedom and life are threatened. To survive, she marries Jamie Fraser, a strapping Scots warrior with a complicated past and a disarming sense of humor. A passionate relationship ensues, and Claire is caught between two vastly different men in two inharmonious lives. “Outlander” is adapted from the best-selling books by Diana Gabaldon.

Costumes of Downton Abbey is an original exhibition of exquisite designs from the award-winning television series. Forty historically inspired costumes from the television show will be displayed and supplemented by photographs and vignettes inspired by the fictional program and by real life at Winterthur.
Visitors will have a chance to step into and experience the world of Downton Abbey® and the contrasting world of Winterthur founder Henry Francis du Pont and his contemporaries in the first half of the 20th century.

In addition, Winterthur will host a wide range of lectures, workshops, and exciting events for adults and families focusing on entertaining and country house life in Britain and the United States.

A co-production of Carnival Films and Masterpiece, Downton Abbey depicts life in an aristocratic household of the fictional Earl and Countess of Grantham and is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed period dramas ever produced. It has won a Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries and seven Emmys including a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries. It was the most watched television series in both the UK and the U.S. and became the most successful British costume drama series since the 1981 television serial Brideshead Revisited. By the third series, it had become one of the most widely watched television shows in the world. The Guinness World Records recognized Downton Abbey as the most critically acclaimed English-language television series of 2011.

The costumes will be lent by Cosprop, the world’s leading costumier to film, television, and theater. Winterthur’s most popular exhibition, Fashion in Film, which attracted more than 42,000 people over its three-month run, also featured costumes by Cosprop.

Art + Architecture: Building Museums for the Future
Designing a space for a public art collection is a complicated task.  The building can be an art piece in itself, grow attendance and become a destination for tourism.  But it has to stand the tests of time, house a collection in perpetuity, reflect the community and the collection it serves, and incorporate room for growth.  Learn how some very different institutions are tackling these challenges and building museums of the future.
Moderator:  Carlo Caccavale, Associate Director, American Institute of Architects Los Angeles 
 
4pm
James Magni: Magni Modernism
Join James Magni for a surprising illustrated conversation about how art, light, design, and spirituality have inspired and shaped his 25-year career. His highly sophisticated, modern home design is beautifully captured in his new book, Magni Modernism. Book signing to follow lecture.
