Don't Miss "Reigning Men" at the Powerhouse Museum in Australia!

October 9, 2018

Many of LACMA's exhibitions tour the world, bringing works from the permanent collection and original scholarship to an international audience. Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715–2015, which was a crowd favorite when it was on view at LACMA in 2016, has been on the road. If you are near Sydney, Australia this week, be sure to visit the Powerhouse Museum, where Reigning Men is on view through October 14.

Can't be there? Dive in to the Unframed archives to experience the exhibition through stories related to the show, from how our curators found an authentic zoot suit to the art of dressing mannequins to the virtual exhibition that is part of Google Arts & Culture "We wear culture" project.
