15 Experiences That Push The Boundaries Of Art.

Another rather fabulous way to turn conventional ideas of art, and the subject matter worthy of being addressed by fine art, upside down is to embrace Camp. With “Camp: Notes on Fashion” as the Met Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition, the idea is sure to be on everyone’s lips. The exhibition takes its name from “Notes on ‘Camp‘”, in which Susan Sontag describes “the essence of Camp […] its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.” Read the full essay, dress for the occasion to get into the spirit, head down to the Met for a full dose of camp fashion, then seek out other camp works of art in the museum.
