Shakira’s two Super Bowl halftime outfits, her handwritten lyrics, and her heavily crystalized electric guitar are among the items on display for a museum exhibit in Los Angeles.
The Grammy Museum announced on Thursday that the multi-Grammy winner’s first exhibit will open on March 4. In the museum’s permanent Latin music gallery, “Shakira, Shakira: The Grammy Museum Experience” will feature 40 artefacts from her personal archive.
The museum exhibit will trace Shakira’s musical journey from her beginnings as a Latin performer in Colombia to her global superstardom as a multi-genre performer who excels in bachata, rock, Bhangra, and reggaetón.
“It’s an honour to have my career’s journey displayed at the Grammy museum,” Shakira said in a statement. “These pieces are a testament to so many indelible moments that I cherish, and I’m so grateful to be able to relive these memories with those who have supported me as an artist and continue to do so.”
Shakira’s 70,000 black crystal-encrusted electric guitar and acoustic guitar used for songwriting will be on display. Her El Dorado tour outfits from 2018 and the leaf-covered bikini she wore on the 2005 album “Oral Fixation, Vol. 2” are among the other items.
“Shakira is the rare superstar who has discovered a way to keep evolving as an artist while growing her vast audience alongside her,” said Jasen Emmons, the Grammy Museum’s chief curator and vice president of curatorial affairs.
“She’s a serious music student, and the Grammy Museum is thrilled to present a dynamic exhibit reflecting her intelligence and artistry.”
