The Date: Monday, May 6th, 2019

The Theme: Camp: Notes on Fashion

Huh? Camp, as in exaggerated fashion, inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, that defines camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration”.

The exhibition opens to the public Thursday May 9th and closes Sunday September 8th.
