BREAKING NEWS! the MET+Miuccia Prada+Elsa Schiaparelli=
a visually interesting, culturally important, exhibition…
Via the Met’s Press room this morning:
New York, October 12, 2011) – The spring 2012 exhibition organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art will be Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada: On Fashion, it was announced by the Museum today. The exhibition, on view from May 10 through August 19, 2012 (preceded on May 7 by The Costume Institute Gala Benefit), will explore the striking affinities between these two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias’s “Impossible Interviews” for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, curators Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton will originate fictive conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work.
This is exciting news and is important on a societal level that extends far beyond pure fashion, art, and their respected industries-the brilliance, intelligence, merit, and innovation of these two female figures is astonishing-this promises to be an exhibition to remember.
