“Camp: Notes on Fashion” | 9th May | NYC8th May 2019, 8:53 am
Through more than 250 objects dating from the seventeenth century to the present, The Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition explores the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp'” provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion.
“Camp is a holiday for consenting adults.” —Philip Core, 1984
