The ROM goes BIG with Fashion and Textiles
Until Fall 2013
Patricia Harris Gallery of Textiles and Costume, Level 4
This wide-ranging ROM exhibition showcases textiles and costume that are each in their own remarkable ways BIG… BIG in size, BIG in historical importance, BIG in the news, perhaps created by a BIG name, and often carrying a BIG price tag.
Funky and unique, 40 objects–both historical and contemporary, all gathered from the ROM’s extensive collections–showcase BIG from around the world. They range from Egyptian clothing to 18th- and 19th-century Western costumes to 20th-century Haute Couture. Some have never before been on display.
BIG is generously supported by the Burnham Brett Endowment for Textiles and Costume and The Dorothy Strelsin Foundation
