Art and fashion in Rei Kawakubo’s MET show
Comme des Garçons’s Rei Kawakubo is now showing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The show will be the first monograph show at the museum to focus on a living designer since its Yves Saint Laurent exhibit in 1983.
Objects are organized into nine aesthetic expressions of interstitiality in Kawakubo’s work: Absence/Presence, Design/Not Design, Fashion/Anti-Fashion, Model/Multiple, Then/Now, High/Low, Self/Other, Object/Subject, and Clothes/Not Clothes. Exhibition through September 4, 2017.
