See the high platform chopines of 16th-century Italy to the glamorous stilettos gracing today’s runways and red carpets.

Killer Heels explores fashion’s most provocative accessory. From the high platform chopines of sixteenth-century Italy to the glamorous stilettos gracing today’s runways and red carpets, the exhibition looks at the high-heeled shoe’s rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination. Deadly sharp stilettos, architecturally inspired wedges and platforms, and a number of artfully crafted shoes defying categorization are featured among the more than 160 historical and contemporary heels on loan from designers and from the renowned Brooklyn Museum costume collection, housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Albuquerque venue will also include heels by local designers and artists including Janice Ortiz, Virgil Ortiz, Goldie Garcia, Teri Greeves, and Deana McGuffin. Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe is organized by the Brooklyn Museum. Exhibition-related educational programs are generously supported by The Albuquerque Chapter of the Links, Incorporated.

The Killer Heels Members Opening Reception is generously sponsored by Pregenzer, Baysinger, Wideman, & Sale, PC.

Killer Heels experience is included with regular museum admission.
