Metropolitan Museum NY - Manus X Machina

Manus x Machina exhibition
Fashion in an age of technology
May 5–August 14, 2016

The Costume Institute's spring 2016 exhibition will explore the impact of new technology on fashion, and how designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear. The exhibition will propose a new view in which the hand (manus) and the machine (machina), often presented as oppositional, are equal protagonists.
