Out of this World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television

EMP|SFM has organized an original exhibition of costumes from Star Wars, Blade Runner, The Terminator, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and many more of the most popular films and television shows of all time, to tell the story how costumes play a crucial role in defining characters for visual storytelling in media.

The exhibition examines how costume design incorporates color, style, scale, materials, historical traditions and cultural cues to help performers and audiences engage with the characters being portrayed. The exhibition’s purpose is to offer museum visitors new ways of seeing characters as defined by their costumes.

The exhibition is organized into sections based on themes such as “Heroes and Villains,” “Creating the Character,” and “Caped Crusaders” as well as specific franchises such as Star Trek and Star Wars.

My pleasure - I'm still on the lookout for the "embroidered robe worn by actor Joe Turkel as Eldon Tyrell, creator of the replicants, in Blade Runner..."

I was hoping someone would have got a shot of the robe, but the galleries posted so far are (not surprisingly) Star Wars heavy. We'll all keep looking and hope someone spots it.

Btw, I added another link to the list above.
