WHERE:

The Met Fifth Avenue, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, 10028

WHAT:

The Costume Institute’s In America: An Anthology of Fashion is the second portion of a two-part exhibition exploring fashion in the United States at The Met Fifth Avenue! This section of the exhibition will highlight sartorial narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of the American Wing period rooms! Follow the Get Tickets link to reserve your spot and for more information.

Key features include men and women’s dress dating from the eighteenth century to the present featured in vignettes installed in select period rooms spanning ca. 1805 to 1915: a Shaker Retiring Room from the 1830s; a nineteenth-century parlor from Richmond, Virginia; a panoramic 1819 mural of Versailles; and a twentieth-century living room designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, among others!

The exhibition will reflect on these narratives through a series of three-dimensional cinematic “freeze frames” produced in collaboration with notable American film directors! These mise-en-scènes will explore the role of dress in shaping American identity and address the complex and layered histories of the rooms!
