In a striking display of interesting shoes from around the world and across the ages, the exhibit uses a few familiar movie clips from contemporary pop culture and recent history to show the impact that heels have had on contemporary society.

Some favorite clips from the show:

Some Like It Hot:

Memoirs of A Geisha:

A clip from Sakuran was also shown, as well as several videos created by artists that showcased the wonder and allure of a high heel.

When we think about all that Jay-Z has contributed to society, this line from  “Oceans” will stand out  as part of contemporary anti-Columbus Day mottos prone to be distributed across social media.  This year, it also became the title of a tribute exhibit for The Notorious B.I.G. at The Bishop on Bedford in Brooklyn.
