China: Through the Looking Glass Exhibit Images: @metmuseum May can’t come soon enough — not after seeing the images of Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute upcoming Spring Exhibition … On tap will be more than 130 pieces of ready-to-wear and couture. The clothing will be shown alongside other Chinese works of art and film, like a strapless fishtail gown, which boasts a similarly ornate design as a painted dragon vase. China: Through the Looking Glass will run from May 7 to August 16.
