MANUS X MACHINA: FASHION IN AN AGE OF TECHNOLOGY

THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART

MAY 5-AUGUST 14 2016


The Costume Institute's spring 2016 exhibition will explore the impact of new technology on fashion, and how designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear. The exhibition will present a new view in which the hand (manus) and the machine (machina), often presented as oppositional, are equal.
 Pairings of handmade haute couture garments with their machine-made ready-to-wear counterparts will be presented. A suite of rooms will reflect the traditional structure of a couture atelier and its petites mains workshops for embroidery, feathers, pleating, knitting, lacework, leatherwork, braiding, and fringe work. These will be contrasted with ensembles incorporating new technologies including 3D printing, laser cutting, thermo shaping, computer modeling, circular knitting, ultrasonic welding, bonding, and laminating.
The Anna Wintour Costume Center galleries will contain a series of "in-process" workshops, where visitors will see the creation of 3D-printed garments over the course of the exhibition.
Additional support is provided by Conde Nast.
Wow!
