Hedi Slimane curated Myths and Legends of Los Angeles a group show of Californian artists, including John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, Chris Burden, Sterling Ruby, Mark Hagen, and Patrick Hill at Almine Rech Gallery in Paris and Brussels. His own work was shown in 2011 at the MOCA, where Slimane presented a photographic installation that showcased an archive of images from his California period. The exhibition, titled California Song, was created in a kinematics way, accompanied by a soundtrack by the musical group No Age.
Hedi Slimane created the photographic blog Hedi Slimane Diary. Slimane created his Rock Diary, beginning in 2004 in collaboration with the British journalist from NME, Alex Needham. In addition, he shot spreads for magazines including French Vogue, VMAN, and Purple.
When Slimane left for America and based himself in Los Angeles in 2007, California became the subject of many of his images and later the subject of several exhibitions.
HEDI SLIMANE - RENEGADES OF FASHION
Hedi Slimane décide de ne pas renouveler son contrat Dior Homme, arrivé à échéance. Afin de le persuader de rester, la maison de couture lui propose de financer sa propre griffe, mais les discussions échouent et Slimane souhaite reprendre sa liberté, revenir à la photographie et se mettre en retrait. Il enchaîne alors plusieurs expositions en Europe, à la Fondation d'art contemporain Ellipse de Lisbonne, au Foam Museum d'Amsterdam, à la galerie Arndt Partners de Berlin (exposition sur la jeune scène new-yorkaise, Dan Colen, Nate Lowman, Dash Snow, etc.), au Musac, et à la galerie Almine Rech à Paris.
