Metropolitan Museum

From November 2015 through June 2016, the visual artist and educator Peter Hristoff—a 2015-16 artist in residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art—will engage with Museum visitors in a series of creative, multi-faceted public programs that demonstrate the vibrancy, diversity, and beauty of contemporary Islamic culture within the context of the Met’s collection.

The Met’s Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, explores the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias’s “Impossible Interviews” for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, the exhibition features orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work.
