The exhibitions you can’t miss in 2019
Let’s take a look at the unmissable international exhibitions in 2019 dedicated to fashion and its codes.
Camp: Notes on Fashion
Met New York
The Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition will explore the origins of the Camp aesthetics and how it evolved from a place of marginality to an important influence on modern formulas. Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay on Camp provides a framework for the exhibition, which will examine how designers have used their art as a vehicle to explore the Camp movement in a myriad of compelling, ironic and sometimes incongruous ways.
Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color
Fashion Institute of Technology New York
The Fashion Institute of Technology will explore pink in all its glorious facets, with an exposure studded with pink thanks to exceptional pieces. Often synonymous with innocence and femininity, pink has become a much more significant shade over the years and across different cultures. Whether seductive or independent, FIT will explore the depths of colour with its Pink exhibition: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color promises to be one of the best of the year.
Back Side – Fashion From Behind
Fashion and lace museum Bruxelles
The exhibition presents an exceptional collection of clothing and accessories from the 18th century to the present day. Bringing together pieces from museums and fashion houses with roaring names. Back Side questions our perception of our back and that of others. Human beings have an ambiguous relationship with their backs. A person is vulnerable because they can’t see their back; yet fashion constantly decorates or reveals our backs. To explore this original theme, the Fashion & Lace Museum has joined for the first time with the Palais Galliera, the Fashion Museum in Paris.
