Costume Institute Benefit on May 1 with Co-Chairs Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Anna Wintour; and Honorary Chair Rei Kawakubo

Exhibition Dates:
May 4–September 4, 2017

Member Previews: May 2–May 3, 2017

Exhibition Location:

The Met Fifth Avenue
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall, Floor 2

The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today that The Costume Institute's spring 2017 exhibition will be Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, on view from May 4 through September 4, 2017 (preceded on May 1 by The Costume Institute Benefit). Presented in the Museum's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall on the second floor, the exhibition will examine Kawakubo's fascination with interstitiality, or the space between boundaries. Existing within and between entities—self/other, object/subject, fashion/anti-fashion—Kawakubo's work challenges conventional notions of beauty, good taste, and, ultimately, fashionability. Not a traditional retrospective, the thematic exhibition will be The Costume Institute's first monographic show on a living designer since the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition in 1983. 

"In blurring the art/fashion divide, Kawakubo asks us to think differently about clothing," said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Met. "Curator Andrew Bolton will explore work that often looks like sculpture in an exhibition that will challenge our ideas about fashion's role in contemporary culture."

In celebration of the opening, The Met's Costume Institute Benefit, also known as The Met Gala, will take place on Monday, May 1, 2017. The evening's co-chairs will be Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Anna Wintour. Rei Kawakubo will serve as Honorary Chair. The event is The Costume Institute's main source of annual funding for exhibitions, publications, acquisitions, and capital improvements. 

"Rei Kawakubo is one of the most important and influential designers of the past 40 years," said Andrew Bolton, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute. "By inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation, and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time."

Rei Kawakubo said, "I have always pursued a new way of thinking about denying established values, conventions, and what is generally accepted as the norm. And the modes of expression that have always been most important to me are fusion...imbalance... unfinished... elimination...and absence of intent."

Exhibition Overview
The exhibition will feature approximately 120 examples of Kawakubo's womenswear designs for Comme des Garçons, dating from her first Paris runway show in 1981 to her most recent collection. Organized thematically rather than chronologically, the examples will examine Kawakubo's revolutionary experiments in interstitiality or "in-betweenness"—the space between boundaries. By situating her designs within and between dualities such as East/West, male/female, and past/present, Kawakubo not only challenges the rigidity and artificiality of such binaries, but also resolves and dissolves them. To reflect this, mannequins will be arranged at eye level with no physical barriers, thereby dissolving the usual distance between objects on display and museum visitors.

Exhibition Credits
The exhibition will be curated by Andrew Bolton, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute, who will collaborate on the exhibition design with Rei Kawakubo. Nathan Crowley will serve as exhibition production designer for the fifth time, working in collaboration with The Met's Design Department. Raul Avila will produce the gala décor, which he has done since 2007.

Special thanks to Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, and Maison Valentino for their support of the exhibition and benefit.

WHOM YOU KNOW CONTINUES TO CELEBRATE 160 YEARS OF BELLEEK LEADING UP TO 2017! Gorgeous Gifts for Mr. and Ms. Impossible to Shop For: Belleek Shopping Basket Dish Highly Recommended by Whom You Know! Just Perfect for the Person that Loves to Shop, and Who Doesn't?!

Two of Peachy Deegan's most favorites are 1. Ireland and 2. Shopping.
You can just imagine the glee emanating from her being when walking down Grafton Street, otherwise known as the Madison Avenue of Dublin.
Especially when you live in a Manhattan dwelling, you have a special appreciation for the tiny fine things in life and at four inches, this darling little shopping basket will remind you of your favorite sport (aisle cruising!) while it holds anything from your jewelry to your small remote control to your packets of sugar or whatever floats your boat.  Obviously, put a shamrock on anything and it's automatically improved!  
Crafted and painted entirely by hand at historic Belleek Pottery in Ireland, this cute little basket recalls historic Celtic traditions of collecting garden produce in woven vessels to carry back to the cottage. The 4” long basket is sized to fit sugar packets, condiments, a little pot pouri or trinkets that clutter your dresser. 

Belleek will celebrate its 160th Anniversary in 2017! 
Crafting fine “Parian” china at our historic pottery on the River Erne in County Fermanagh very much the same way for generations. Each piece is touched by 16 hands from our design team to the mould room, hand-painters to packaging, each is distinct and a perfect reflection of Irish craft.

Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr (1-0—1) scored his first goal of the season and 750th of his career to become the third player in NHL history to reach the milestone, joining Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801).

* At age 44 and playing in his 1,633rd career game, Jagr is the oldest of the trio at the time of his 750th career goal. Elias notes that Gretzky reached the milestone on Jan. 8, 1993 at age 31 in his 1,001st career game, while Howe hit the mark on Feb. 8, 1970 at age 41 in his 1,598th career game.

* Elias adds that Jagr is the seventh player in NHL history to score at least one goal in 23 or more different seasons, joining Howe (26), Mark Messier (25) and four others at 23 –Dave Andreychuk, Johnny Bucyk, Alex Delvecchio and Ron Francis. 

* Jagr recorded his 1,870th career point to move within 17 of tying Messier (694-1,193—1,887) for second place all-time, behind Gretzky (894-1,963—2,857). Jagr also ranks among the all-time leaders in game-winning goals (133; 1st), assists (1,120; 6th) and games played (1,633; 8th).

Jacob Markstrom made 26 saves and Daniel Sedin (1-0—1) scored the eventual game-winning goal midway through the third period to help the Canucks match the best four-game start to a season in franchise history.

* At 4-0-0, the Canucks are the only team in the NHL without a loss of any kind. The club also won each of its first four games in 1992-93.

* Vancouver equaled the feat despite not holding a lead in regulation until Jannik Hansen(1-0—1) scored at 11:10 of the second period in Thursday’s game.

* D. Sedin, who has spent his entire career with the Canucks, notched his 79th career game-winning goal to extend his franchise record.

Trailing 2-0 entering the third period, Penguins forwards Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist each posted 1-1—2 to help Pittsburgh rally past San Jose in a rematch of the 2016 Stanley Cup Final.

* Elias notes that there have been 13 instances this season in which a team has overcome a multi-goal deficit to earn at least one point. The trailing team eventually won 10 of those 13 instances.

* In 2015-16, teams overcame a multi-goal deficit to earn at least a point 150 times, including 93 victories.

Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin (1-0—1) – the franchise’s all-time leader in game-winning goals – and Kings defenseman Alec Martinez (1-1—2) – the overtime hero from the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs – each notched deciding goals on Thursday:

* Ovechkin scored his 90th career game-winning goal to lead Washington to its third straight win. Elias says that Ovechkin, who ranks third among active skaters with 527 career goals, became the 22nd player in NHL history to record 90 career decisive tallies. Only three active players have more such goals: Jagr (133), Jarome Iginla (97) and Patrick Marleau (93).

* Martinez scored 1:20 into the extra frame to help the Kings hold off the Stars – who scored three tying goals – and record their first win of 2016-17. Martinez, who scored a series-clinching overtime goal in both the 2014 Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Final, tallied the second regular-season overtime goal of his career (341 GP).

Three members of Team Canada’s championship team from the World Cup of Hockey 2016 helped their clubs earn victories on Thursday, including two who made their 2016-17 NHL season debuts:

* Canadiens goaltender Carey Price – who went 5-0-0 at the World Cup of Hockey (1 SO, 1.40 GAA, .957 SV%) – made 27 saves in his first NHL appearance since Nov. 25, 2015 to help Montreal to move to 3-0-1 this season. Price improved to 8-0-0 in eight career appearances vs. ARI (1 SO, 1.49 GAA, .949 SV%).

* Bruins forwards Brad Marchand (1-1—2) and Patrice Bergeron (1-0—1) – who finished second and third in scoring, respectively, at the World Cup of Hockey – combined to rally Boston to victory in its home opener. Bergeron, who was playing in his first NHL game of the season, notched the winning goal with 75 seconds remaining in regulation.

* Kings forward Nic Dowd (1-0—1), a seventh round selection (198th overall) in the 2009 NHL Draft, scored the first goal of his career (7 GP). Per Elias, Dowd (Huntsville, Ala.) became the second Alabama-born player in NHL history to score a goal; he joined Aud Tuten (Enterprise, Ala.), who scored four goals in 39 games over two seasons in 1941-42 and 1942-43.

* Coyotes defenseman Jakub Chychrun, the 16th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, scored his first career goal (2 GP). Elias notes that the native of Boca Raton, Fla., became the fifth Florida-born player to score an NHL goal, joining Dan Hinote (Leesburg, Fla.),Blake Geoffrion (Plantation, Fla.), Jayson Megna (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) and Shayne Gostisbehere (Pembroke Pines, Fla.).

The Ducks ended their season-opening five-game road trip with their first victory, while the Hurricanes improved to 1-1-2 on their season-opening six-game trip . . . DefensemanShea Weber (1-1—2), who was acquired from the Predators on June 29 in exchange forP.K. Subban, scored his first goal as a member of the Canadiens. Weber has 1-3—4 in four games w/ MTL . . .

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) will be taking on the Nurburgring once again this weekend in round 10 of the VLN championship, a series based entirely on the legendary German circuit. The team will be running one car, Macchinadue (702), with drivers Thomas Mutsch and Felipe Laser.

This race follows the teams success last month at the ‘Ring, also know as ‘The Green Hell,’ where SCG finished fourth overall against the best-known sportscar manufacturers in the world - its best result ever in an uninterrupted VLN race.

Felipe Laser said: “The target for the weekend will be the podium. We’ve made some good improvements during the season and I’m looking forward to competing against the big GT3 manufacturers for the podium.”

Thomas Mutsch said: "After the good result in VLN8 from our team mates, I´m really looking forward to the weekend! Right now the weather forecast is changing every day, but we are anyway not scared about rain as the SCG003C is great to drive in all conditions. But we have some new parts to test, so let´s hope it´s dry at least in free practice."

Programme director Paolo Garella commented: “Myself and the team are really looking forward to getting back on the track and hopefully building on our last successful result. A lot of work has been going on behind the scenes to develop the car to ensure it is in the best shape possible for this race.”

Testing takes place today between 09.30 – 15.30 and 16.30 – 18.30. Qualifying is on Saturday 22nd October from 08.30 – 10.00 with the race starting at 12.00 and finishing at 16.00.
