Charles James: Beyond Fashion is one of those exhibitions in which viewers do not know just where fashion ends and art begins. Admiring a glamorous dress by the famous couturier is akin to watching a good film or facing a masterful painting. A journey through the artist’s life and work at New York’s Metropolitan Museum, from May 8 to August 10, 2014, will definitely be a particular sensory experience.
