Costume Institute's Spring 2018 exhibition to explore fashion and
New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art will draw connections between religious
art and contemporary couture for its next major fashion exhibition, to be
designed by architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro.
Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination will be a joint between
The Met's Fifth Avenue location and The Met Cloisters – the museum's satellite
location at the northern tip of Manhattan, which exhibits medieval art.
The exhibition will trace the history of garments depicted in Catholic art,
and reveal how some of today's biggest designers have been influenced by the
imagery and ideas presented in centuries of ecclesiastical artefacts.
The Costume Institute, based at the museum, is partnering with The Met's
Department of Medieval Art to organise the show.
Fashion and religion have long been intertwined, mutually inspiring and
informing one another," said Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton. "Although
this relationship has been complex and sometimes contested, it has produced some
of the most inventive and innovative creations in the history of fashion."
For the show, a collection of papal robes and accessories will travel from
The Vatican for display in the Anna Wintour Costume Center. The garments, rings
and tiaras date from the 18th to early 20th century – spanning 15 papacies – and
will be shown alongside 50 artworks from the sacristy of the Sistine Chapel.
In The Met's medieval galleries and at The Met Cloisters, 150 ensembles from
the past century will be presented among the historic artworks. Outfits by names
including Azzedine Alaïa, Cristobal Balenciaga, John Galliano, Jean Paul
Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, Raf Simons and Vivienne Westwood will all feature.
New York-based Diller Scofidio + Renfro will collaborate with the museum's
design department on the exhibition display, following the firm's work on the
institution's Charles James exhibition in 2014.
