Cut! Costume and the Cinema Exhibition
April 16, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
CUT! features 43 breathtaking period costumes worn by Hollywood’s biggest stars, and offers an in-depth look at how costumes help the actors we admire play their parts well. The exhibition tour is organized by Exhibits Development Group, USA in cooperation with Cosprop, LTD, London, England.
Visitors to CUT! will be transported to the high seas with the costume Johnny Depp wore as Jack Sparrow inPirates of the Caribbean. And they will move from fairy tale England (Angelica Huston, Ever After) to colonial Virginia (Colin Farrell, The New World) to 18th-century England (Keira Knightley, The Duchess) and to 19th-century Paris – fantastic and opulent – (Emmy Rossum,The Phantom of the Opera). They will enjoy the escapades of the pair from 22B Baker Street – (Robert Downey, Jr and Jude Law, Sherlock Holmes) and be transported to seedy Shanghai in the 1930s (Natasha Richardson and Ralph Fiennes, The White Countess) and to World War II Belarus (Daniel Craig, Defiance). More than 30 actors, including Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Heath Ledger and Kate Winslet will be represented from some 25 films, all of which have been recognized in the trade and appreciated by the public for the quality of their costumes that evoke eras that have long since passed.
