Madonna's conical bra and corset adorn 2014 Barbican season

The corset and conical bra Madonna wore for her 1990 world tour will go on display at London's Barbican Centre next year as part of an eclectic 2014 season.

The lingerie will be in an exhibition of designs by Jean-Paul Gaultier, who created them for Madonna's 'Blond Ambition' tour as well as stagewear for Kylie Minogue and costumes for the films of Pedro Almodovar and Luc Besson's 'The Fifth Element'.

The Barbican lineup will also include a look at the impact of digital technology on the arts and culture, a play based on a book by Colm Toibin and the venue's more traditional fare of symphony concerts, recitals and film.

Visitors to the famous brutalist-architecture arts-cum-housing complex in northeast London for the first time topped one million for the 2012-2013 season, Barbican managing director Nicholas Kenyon said at a news conference on Tuesday.

He acknowledged it would be hard to beat that, but the varied offerings next year look like a serious bid to do so.

The Gaultier exhibition, which opens in April, will be supplemented by the designer's personal selection of films he says have influenced him, ranging from Peter Greenaway's 'The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover' to Elia Kazan's adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play 'A Streetcar Named Desire'.
