The Experience Music Project (EMP)/Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame (SFM) in Seattle, Ore., currently has an exhibition of more than 30 costumes and objects from Star Wars, Blade Runner, The Terminator, Superman, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and many more of the most popular science fiction-related films and television shows of all time.
The exhibition, Out of this World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television runs through September 30, 2007, in SFMÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s third-level gallery space. It allows visitors to examine 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 is organized into themes including Ã¢â‚¬Å“Heroes and Villains,Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Creating the CharacterÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“Caped CrusadersÃ¢â‚¬Â as well as specific franchises such as Star Trek and Star Wars.
