A new exhibition

At London's National Portrait Gallery, the exhibition 'Michael Jackson: On The Wall' will explore the impact that the King of Pop had on contemporary art and our collective cultural imagination. HUGO BOSS is proud to support the exhibition, which will feature the work of over 40 artists. Celebrating what would have been Michael Jackson's 60th birthday, HUGO BOSS will launch an exclusive capsule collection in August 2018. This exhibition will be on display in the Grand Palais in Paris between 23 November 2018 and 14 February 2019.

How did the exhibition come about, and how were the works selected? What makes Jackson such a strong influence on culture, even to this day? We spoke to curator of the exhibition and the Director of the National Portrait Gallery
Dr. Nicholas Cullinan to find out.
