Comme des Garcons exhibit @ The MET

“Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between—Gallery Views”

Clothing is art? Not sure, go see this exhibit and then decide. The fabrics, tailoring, wigs and colors fuel this question. If that isn’t enough all of the pieces literally prompt you to decide with titles such as:

Absence/Presence
Design/Not Design
Fashion/Anti-Fashion
Object/Subject
Clothes/Not Clothes

The exhibit is cozy in size and can be viewed in under 45 mins. I love that the exhibit allows viewers to take any route through a maze of pure white massively curved walls, where the clothing peeks through at every turn.
