WHAT:

This exhibition celebrates the career and legacy of black fashion designer Patrick Kelly. First presented by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2014, the exhibition presents eighty fully accessorized ensembles, dating from 1984 to 1990, from the Philadelphia Museum’s archive of Kelly’s work. Follow the Get Tickets link to find out more and book your place.

Kelly drew upon his childhood in the United States South, his African American heritage, his experiences in the club and gay cultural scenes in New York and Paris, and muses from fashion, art, and black history to create light-hearted yet sophisticated designs that pushed racial and cultural boundaries.

The exhibition situates Kelly and his work in the broader context of art and fashion history by exploring the inspirations behind his designs, his significant collection of racist memorabilia whose images he wrested to tell his own story, and footage from his exuberant and groundbreaking fashion shows.
