Exhibition: “Heavenly Bodies” at Met Fifth Avenue & Cloisters

August 14

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 12:00am on Tuesday, repeating until October 8, 2018

The Costume Institute’s spring 2018 exhibition—May 10 – Oct. 8, at The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters—will feature a dialogue between fashion and medieval art from The Met collection to examine fashion’s ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism.  Serving as the cornerstone of the exhibition, papal robes and accessories from the Sistine Chapel sacristy, many of which have never been seen outside The Vatican, will be on view in the Anna Wintour Costume Center. Fashions from the early twentieth century to the present will be shown in the Byzantine and medieval galleries, part of the Robert Lehman Wing, and at The Met Cloisters.
