CAMP at the Met

CAMP: Notes on Fashion

Currently running at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibition is open till September 8th.

"Through more than 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present, The Costume Institute's spring 2019 exhibition explores the origins of camp's exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on 'Camp'" provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion."
