Precedent Exhibition Alexander Mcqueen

The Metropolitan Museum did an interesting job in exhibiting Alexander Mcqueen: Savage Beauty. The presentations of the garments are not overwhelmed by the "interiors" that each are placed within. The garments become an celebrated form and the only focus throughout the exhibit. Just the contrast of a single colored or covered surface in the background allows the pieces to pop and allow the viewer to only focus on the detail of the garments or work of art depending on how one would view them. I am not sure how the exhibit is set up for people to navigate within it, and not so sure if there are plaques that describe the work. However, does a piece of work, wither it be furniture or garments, need something to explain it? or is it up to the viewer to interpret the piece for themselves. For more images check out the link.
