VIRTUAL FIELD TRIP: THE MET’S ABOUT TIME – FASHION AND DURATION EXHIBITION
Our Members-Only Field Trips are here to stay! Head to the Big Apple and (virtually) experience the iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art with your friends from the Alliance on January 23. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity lets you spend intimate time with The Costume Institute’s 2020 exhibition, About Time: Fashion and Duration.
Exploring the symbiotic relationship between fashion and time, this exhibition—a celebration of The Met’s 150th anniversary—presents 150 years of fashion, culled almost exclusively from The Costume Institute’s collection, along two parallel timelines. The first features sixty ensembles in chronological order from 1870 to the present. Progressive, continuous, and relentlessly forward moving, the timeline draws attention to the way fashion is inherently governed by novelty, ephemerality, and obsolescence. The second intersperses a series of sixty interruptions or disruptions that pre- or post date the fashions in the first timeline but relate to them in terms of shape, motif, material, technique, or decoration.
