Celebrating 50 years of "the most fashionable museum in New York," Exhibitionism illustrates through individual garments, installation photos, images and text, the lively and enlightening history of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. This publication commemorates approximately 33 of the most important of the over 200 shows that the museum has put together including Fashion and Surrealism (1987), a groundbreaking show that explored the relationship between art and fashion; The Corset (2000), a beautiful and brilliant exploration of the most controversial garment in fashion history; and Fairy Tale Fashion (2016), a magical look at such enchanted and emblematic items as the glass slipper and the red riding hood. Exhibitionism also includes highlights from more recent, award-winning exhibitions, such as A Queer History of Fashion: From the Closet to the Catwalk (2013) and Black Fashion Designers (2017).
