Action! The Met Gala exhibition will highlight 8 of the best directors
NEW YORK (AP) — Hollywood will have a strong presence at this year’s Met Gala — and not just on the red carpet. A cast of top directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Regina King and last year’s Oscar-winning actress Chloe Zhao, will be a key part of the Costume Institute exhibit that kicks off the gala in May.
Star curator Andrew Bolton announced on Tuesday the list of eight directors who will create what he called “cinematic vignettes” in the period rooms of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s American Wing. The other four are Janicza Bravo, Julie Dash, Autumn de Wilde and Tom Ford, the famous fashion designer who is also a director.
