The exhibition features more than 150 engaging and unique artifacts on loan from over 25 national and international institutions and private collections. Key pieces include: works of art by Andy Warhol and A.Y. Jackson; haute couture garments by eminent designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent and Maharishi; clothing worn by Joe Strummer of The Clash; and a coat hand-painted by First World War camouflage pioneer Eugene Corbin with one of the first camouflage patterns. Also on display are model warships painted in “dazzle” patterns from the First World War; a replica of a 1917 observation post disguised as a fake tree; “Rupert,” a dummy paratrooper from the D-Day invasion; photographs of some of history’s greatest deceptions; and much, much more.
