Led by The Met’s Helen Lee, while the museum was closed to the public, the group explored the theme of the artificiality, parody, pastiche, humor, irony and exaggeration and how these themes have been expressed in fashion.  Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp” provides the framework for the exhibition, which traces the history of CAMP from its origins with Moliere to modern day Moschino.

“The hallmark of Camp is the spirit of extravagance. Camp is a woman walking around in a dress made of three million feathers,” wrote Sontag.
