Met Gala 2020 Theme & Celebrity Co-Chairs Revealed!

  • The theme for next year’s Met Gala has been announced

Appropriately, the theme for the institution's annual Gala will be "About Time: Fashion and Duration", Vogue reports.

"Employing Henri Bergson's concept of la durée (duration), it will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate past, present, and future", according to the Met's announcement. The catalogue will include a new short story by Michael Cunningham, victor of the Pulitzer Prize for his novel, "The Hours", which was inspired by Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway".

The 2020 gala, which is always held on the first Monday of May, also marks the 150th anniversary of The Met, so we can expect May 4 next year to be especially unforgettable. The Museum lives in three iconic sites in New York City-The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters. The milestone will be marked by new exhibits, public events and of course the highly anticipated Met Gala.

"It's a reimagining of fashion history that's fragmented, discontinuous, and heterogeneous", says Andrew Bolton, curator in charge of the Costume Institute. "It not only reflects and represents the spirit of the times, but it also changes and develops with the times".

Some 160 pieces will feature in the exhibition, and some will offer a connection between eras or generations. For instance, a black silk faille princess-line dress from the late 1870's will be paired with an Alexander McQueen "Bumster" skirt from 1995. The A-listers will be joined by Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, Louis Vuitton artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière and, of course, Anna Wintour. Guests are encouraged to dress according to a theme, which relates to that exhibition - a year ago the exhibition was titled Camp: Notes on Fashion and represented an exploration of "camp" in fashion, framed around Susan Sontag's 1964 essay Notes on Camp.
