A retrospective of Alexander McQueen's work will open on May 4, 2011 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. This exhibition called Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty highlights the enormous contribution of McQueen to both fashion and art and is presented as a contemporary art installation in which fashion is the medium.
