Met Gala 2020's New Date Is Still Under Discussion

Met Gala 2020's New Date Is Still Under Discussion

The 2020 Met Gala will not get a new date at this time.

“The timing of the 2020 Met Gala is still under discussion. As we have shared, the Museum will remain closed to the public and staff until July 1, based on what we are hearing from the CDC and city, state, and federal leaders,” Nancy Chilton, the chief external relations officer of the Costume Institute, told The Cut.

The exhibit, “About Time: Fashion and Duration,” which was also the official theme of the gala, has been postponed until October and will run until early February 2021.

Anna Wintour, the organizer of the event, said in a statement to Vogue, “One day that will not arrive on schedule will be the opening of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, About Time. Due to the unavoidable and responsible decision by the Metropolitan Museum to close its doors, About Time, and the opening night gala, will not take place on the date scheduled. In the meantime, we will give you a preview of this extraordinary exhibition in our forthcoming May issue.”
