LIBERACE: REMIXED

Inspired by Liberace’s brilliant and lavish performances Liberace: Remixed embraces what the multi talented entertainer and philanthropist is most known for: his style and extraordinary showmanship. The exhibition showcases many of the entertainer’s most extravagant costumes and stage props including sparkling cars, shimmering candelabras and sumptuously adorned pianos.

In the spirit of Liberace’s performances the exhibition is presented as a remix; a series of theatrical, experiential and interactive environments. They reflect on the paradigm shifts in entertainment brought about by Liberace and illuminate his creative genius. Most importantly, they shed light on Liberace’s legacy, which provided inspiration for the likes of Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson and continues to set the stage for many contemporary musicians.

Guests will learn about many different sides of Liberace’s life.  They will see how he dealt with growing up during the depression, the days he played in Milwaukee nightclubs and his live shows at Radio City Music Hall.  Liberace: Remixed takes a close look at the invention of the Liberace persona on and off stage, and examines the difficult task of navigating personal challenges in the harsh spotlight of fame.

The exhibition, both educational and highly entertaining, interprets and mirrors Liberace’s innovative performances through lighting, musical score, sound and projections in a style that invites participation and provides personal, tangible and passionate experiences for visitors.

Exhibition organized with Geoffrey M. Curley+Associates in collaboration with the Liberace Foundation.
