Privately Led Museum Tour featuring The Met Costume Institute’s 2019 Exhibit, “Camp: Notes on Fashion”

The Met Museum’s Costume Institute is known for its bold, highly-talked about fashion exhibitions, and the Institute’s spring 2019 exhibit is no different. This show reveals the origins of the camp aesthetic, looking at its evolution from being a minor subset of fashion to its now significant influence on mainstream culture. The exhibit is structured around Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay Notes on “Camp,” which examines how fashion designers have used their trade as a means of interacting with the camp style in humorous, fascinating, and even absurd ways.

We can craft a unique private tour that includes this exhibit, focusing on the evolution of fashion and design as presented throughout The Met’s collection.

On an ART SMART tour, you or your group can explore this amazing show while being guided by a real art historian. Your guide will lead you on a private tour tailored best fit your interests and passions.
