The Costume Institute’s spring 2018 exhibition Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination—located at both The Met Fifth Avenue and additionaly at one of its subsidiaries, The Met Cloisters—is a continuation of the program’s efforts to explore the connection between fashion and art. Using The Met’s formidable medieval art collection, this year’s exhibition examines fashion’s ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and the traditions of Catholicism and includes robes and accessories never seen outside of The Vatican.

Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination runs from May 10, 2018 through October 8, 2018.
