    A Decade Of Lady Gaga's ARTPOP

    In honor of the 10 year anniversary of Lady Gaga’s fan-favorite record release, let’s take a dive back into some of the most iconic and unforgettable moments surrounding the music, fashion, technology, aesthetics and magic of ARTPOP

    We first took a glimpse into the ARTPOP universe when Gaga performed at the 2013 MTV VMAs, where she premiered the first single “Applause”. For the performance she collaborated with the renowned theater director Robert Wilson, with whom she further worked later on in 2013, posing for him, while Wilson was recreating some of the most iconic paintings that were later displayed in Louvre, Paris.

    Gaga joined forces with American artist and sculptor Jeff Koons for the album cover. Koons created a special statue of Gaga with his famous gazing ball. Gaga used the statue and incorporated Sandro Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s “Apollo and Daphne” for the iconic cover. The cover truly represented the mixture of high art and culture into pop, representing Gaga’s idea of a “reverse Warholian” (pop-art) process.

    Gaga worked with numerous producers on ARTPOP. She worked with DJ Zedd, DJ White Shadow, Madeon… The goal was to incorporate multiple genres, including EDM, rave, R&B, rap, dubstep and pop.

    Gaga also gave countless interviews and performed on numerous TV shows and award ceremonies including iTunes Festival, American Music Awards, Saturday Night Live, Graham Norton Show, X Factor, The Voice, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and even “Lady Gaga and the Muppets Holiday Special” including guest performances by Elton John and RuPaul.

    Gaga held a one-day exclusive album launch party - artRave, headlined the concert special live at Roseland Ballroom and embarked on a world tour artRave: The ARTPOP Ball.

    The whole ARTPOP era was filled with extravagant fashion, even multiple outfits with different wigs in a single day. Gaga served with every single outfit, day after day.
