Is fashion art? That question is raised in the documentary The First Monday In May. Actually, director Andrew Rossi’s documentary focuses less on that philosophical debate that on the preparations for Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2015 art exhibition “China: Through the Looking Glass” and the gala party that opened would mark its debut. The exhibit, curated by Andrew Bolton, represented a first-time collaboration between the New York museum’s Chinese art collection and gallery, in the museum’s main upper level and part of its mainstream fine art holdings, and the museum’s Costume Institute, considered by traditionalists as decorative arts rather than fine art, and housed in the museum’s lower level.

Tribeca Film Review: ‘First Monday in May’

Cultures collide in “First Monday in May,” a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2015 exhibition “China: Through the Looking Glass” and its premiere courtesy of the Anna Wintour-spearheaded Met Gala. With considerable access to these twin productions, director Andrew Rossi charts the clash between a variety of old and new world forces. Eventually less an in-depth investigation than a superficial celebration of disparate styles, it’s a tribute to the Met — and especially its star Costume Institute curator, Andrew Bolton — that should fit discerning audiences like a finely tailored glove after its premiere as the opening night selection of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

“It’s a kind of theater … fashion can create a dream, create a fantasy,” opines Wintour at the opening of “First Monday in May” — named after the date of the Met Gala. Such fanciful inventiveness is at the »
