The new “experience” that occupies the spaces of the Grammy Museum, destined to be there for a year, does not shine anywhere with album covers, posters and extreme colors. Instead, it offers a tour that is not characterized by the abundance of available objects, but by its selective gaze.
This is “Shakira, Shakira: The Grammy Museum Experience”, a new exhibition dedicated to the three-time Grammy winner and 12-time Latin Grammy winner.
Shakira has not notified Piqué of the date of her move to Miami: Why does the ex-soccer player’s family consider it “outrageous” that they take the couple’s children out of Barcelona?
The show formally opened on March 4 and, without including references to his new compositions, he manages to feel current, the Los Angeles Times reported.
In addition, he emphasizes that no allusion to Gerard Piqué or his problems with the Spanish tax authorities for alleged tax evasion can be found in the sample, since it is a celebration of his musical career.

This is what Shakira’s exhibition looks like at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles
“Shakira, Shakira: The Grammy Museum Experience” offers information and objects that seek to convey to the visitor the importance of the singer in creative terms, highlight her innovative role, and highlight her philanthropic work.
Ernesto Lechner, curator of the show, contacted the managers of the Grammy Museum some time ago to propose an exhibition on psychedelia in Latin music.
“I saw Shakira for the first time at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim in the late 90s and realized that she was much deeper than anyone might think at first glance (…) What interested me the most was the possibility of showing to the real Shakira”.

The exhibition has four touch screens with headphones that allow you to listen to 12 songs and watch four videos while reading explanatory texts. In the middle of the room there is a sound console with several knobs to remix four of his songs.
Next door, on a circular screen, you can read and analyze the lyrics of three songs by the artist. In the same area there is a mini theater where you can see a documentary in which Shakira talks about her career.
In addition, it was Shakira herself who defined the objects that were important to show her professional life.
The red ‘top’ that Shakira used in the recent Super Bowl presentation gives way to an intermediate zone, where all her golden treasures are located, including the second suit that she wore at halftime in 2020, the electric guitar that she used on tour of 2018 and a very special headdress.
In the third zone, seven designs used in concerts or on album covers are exhibited, such as a colorful feather skirt and the memorable leaf bikini that she wore on the album cover “Oral Fixation, Vol. 2” (2005).
Nearby, in the Gabriel Abaroa Jr. permanent mini-theater, a report is broadcast with statements by women who offer their opinions on Shakira’s merits. Next to it, a small installation allows you to place your cell phone to record a scene that responds to the most recent TikTok challenge posed by the singer.
There are also two panels focused on Shakira’s philanthropic efforts and another full of hard facts about the Colombian’s career. At the end, a visual compendium of live performances is shown in the largest mini theater of all.
