The theme for next year’s exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute is CAMP. Coming to the museum next spring, the exhibition will explore various camp themes, as referenced in Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay ‘Notes on ‘Camp.” Due to the fun and theatrical nature of camp, it should be a good one.
Even better, Gucci will be sponsoring the presentation and camp queen turned A Star is Born star Lady Gaga, Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, former One Direction-er turned rock star Harry Styles, the greatest living athlete Serena Williams, and of course the reigning queen of Conde Nast Anna Wintour have been announced as co-chairs.
The Met Gala will be held on May 6th 2019, and the exhibition, ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion,’ will be on display May 9th – September 8th. You have until then to figure out what ‘camp’ is.
