The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute spring 2016 exhibition will be “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”, featuring more than 120 examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear, from an 1880s Worth gown to a 2015 Chanel suit. “Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made, but recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other,” says Andrew Bolton, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute. “‘Manus x Machina’ will challenge the conventions of the hand/machine dichotomy and propose a new paradigm germane to our age of technology.”

For Louise Bourgeois, the word “cell” had many connotations, as it refers to the biological cell of a living organism
as well as the isolation of a prison or monastic cell. The exhibition “Structures of Existence: The Cells”, at the
Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, presents an ample selection of her innovative sculptural works.
