At last pop-up phenomenon has been embraced by the museum world. The Museum of the City of New York has partnered up with the New York Design Center for “Cecil Beaton and the 1930’s” a pop-up exhibit (on through October 15th) which is leading the way for the highly-anticipated show “Cecil Beaton: The New York Years” which will open at the MCNY on October 25th. The pop-up features fancy couture creations by Chanel, Schiaparelli, and Mainbocher all from the museum’s collection as well some wonderful furniture from the NYDC’s 1stdibs galleries and, of course, outstanding Beaton photos. For more info on the pop-up see my article in last Thursday’s Currents section of The New York Times.
