If the record-breaking press attendance of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” exhibition is any indication, the present is sure to be successful. But it is one which’s been a very long time coming. Curator Andrew Bolton revealed on Wednesday evening, throughout a dialog with Comme des Garçons CEO Adrian Joffe and vogue journalist Vanessa Friedman, that he is been attempting to make the exhibition occur with Kawakubo since he first met her in 2003.
