IV Gallery has curated "Miss Focket as Beaumont" by Loulou João. Using her signature character “Miss Focket” Loulou reimagines controversial photographer Jean-Paul Goude’s work “Carolina Beaumont, New York" (which is more commonly known as "The Champagne Incident"). This image in particular, as iconic as it is, holds more presence in the recent pop culture mind frame because of the retake done with Kim Kardashian's instantly infamous Paper magazine shoot. Miss Focket takes her turn with this narrative while trying to reclaim the semiotic value it holds regarding the approach of portraying women of color, especially black women.
