A One-Day Trip to NYC to visit "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination"
The Metropolitan Museum of Arts' exhibit "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" has caused quite a stir not only in the fashion world but amongst all those who have an interest in the cultural, historical and anthropological side of fashion.
So many topics to explore on the occasion of the exhibit: the magnificence of ecclesiastical garments vs. the catholic doctrine of humility and modesty; are garments objects of oppression and dominance or self expression of beauty? Can garments create a cult or merely unify a community? Can religious symbols be diverted as body ornaments? Why do we want to look like angels? And so on.
I invite you to join me on July 26th for a unique visit of the exhibit.
Dr. Alexandra Palmer, senior curator at the Royal Ontario Museum, will be with us for the day to provide a historical, cultural and anthropological perspective. We will end the day at the studio of Cora Ginsburg, antique textiles experts.
To ensure an intimate and personal experience, the number of guests is limited to 15.
