An Early Look at the 'Manus X Machina' Exhibition

“Instead of presenting the machine and hand as rivals, the exhibition presents them as equal,” says Andrew Bolton, the chief curator at the Met’s Costume Institute. He says there are “times when the hand has been celebrated and the machine degraded, and vice versa,” so the goal with Manus x Machina is to show that the line between the two is blurring. Not amazingly, the exhibition has the assist of fashion icons like Anna Wintour, as well as Apple.

Bolton says Apple was the ideal sponsor of the exhibition, thanks to its emphasis on craftsmanship, particularly the ways in that a hand and machine come together as one. If you are in New York City or take place to be visiting, Manus x Machina can be open of May 5th to Aug. 14th. In the meantime, enjoy this early peek at a few of the garments on display.
