Met Gala 2019: In 2018, the theme of the costume institute’s Ball sounded like Fashion and Religion. Celebrities, having learned the theme of the future of Met Gala 2019, will begin preparing for the event.
So, the Metropolitan Museum announced the theme Met Gala 2019. It sounds like this: “Camp: notes on fashion” (Camp: Notes on Fashion).
Coming up with the theme, the organizers were inspired by a collection of essays by Susan Sontag “Notes on camp” (1964). Kemp Sontag calls “the love of exaggeration, and the combination of high and vulgar art.” This means that the stars can not deny his fantasies in flight and to demonstrate the most extravagant images.
We are already looking forward to the outfits of Madonna and reality star Kim Kardashian, who always become stars on the red carpet of the Met Gala.
Susan Sontag also believed that the aesthetics of camp was close to what the actress May West, director and choreographer Barbie Berski, famous for her large-scale dance numbers, did in the movies, and saw Sontag in the art of Caravaggio.
Met Gala Ball will be held May 6 in New York. Guests of the event will be met: the chief editor of American Vogue Anna Wintour, Lady Gaga, Gucci art director Alessandro Michele, tennis player Serena Williams and singer Harry Styles.
The new exhibition will open on May 9 and will last until September 8, 2019. The exhibition will include more than 175 objects, the oldest of which date from the XVII century.
