“What needs to go in museums is stuff that isn’t boring!” declared Isaac Mizrahi. Always one to spin runway shows as theatrical events, Mizrahi and his work certainly meet that standard. Ambitious but never too serious, Mizrahi has fearlessly blurred the lines between high and low, fashion and life, since the moment he launched his line in 1987.

Click ahead to view some of the exhibition highlights and galleries. –Stephanie Sporn
