Set against the backdrop of the meteoric rise of Motown records and the American civil rights movement, the exhibition explores the inspirational role The Supremes played in changing racial perceptions, and their influence on today's performers.

 

Featuring over fifty outfits that chart the changing image of the group, from their dresses in the early days as The Primettes, to the glamorous Hollywood designs worn at the height of their fame, the exhibition examines how the group was carefully styled by Berry Gordy and his Motown associates to appeal to the widest possible audience.

 

Based on the collection of Mary Wilson, the display includes the groups's music, album covers and archive performance footage as well as new video interviews with Wilson and Maxine Powell, Motown's in-house Artist Development Director.
