Standing TALL: The Curious History of Men in Heels, opened to the public on May 8, 2015. As the official exhibition to launch the Museum’s 20th anniversary year, Standing Tall challenged preconceived notions about who wears heels and why. From privileged rulers to hyper-sexualized rock stars this provocative exhibition explored the history of men in heels from the early 1600s to today, delving into the use and meanings of heeled footwear in men’s dress over the last four hundred years.
The virtual version of the exhibition can now be found here.
