Museums | Disrupted Timeline of 150 Years of Fashion History (in-person)


The Costume Institute's exhibition About Time: Fashion and Duration (on view Oct 29 - Feb 7) will trace 150 years of fashion, from 1870 to the present, along a disrupted timeline. Employing philosopher Henri Bergson's concept of la duree--the continuity of time--the exhibition will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present, and future. The concept will also be examined through the writings of Virginia Woolf, who will serve as the exhibition's "ghost narrator."
