The 2019 Met Gala's theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion. Andrew Myers was invited to do a fast and furious edit of the exhibition for Vogue's Instagram feed. Andrew showed up the day of the Gala, shot the up-till-then top secret exhibition in a few hours and then created and posted the edit in the press war room during the Gala. Before he headed into the edit, Andrew created "campy" frames for the exhibit footage with vintage images, chewing gum, and neon to complement the theme.
Andrew Myers is a NYC-based artist and filmmaker whose work often explores the processing and output of mass information in the digital era, looking to make controlled sense of a chaotic system of images. His sensibility is delicate, and often plays with juxtaposition and humor.
Growing up in a small town in Ontario, Canada and later obtaining a BFA at Ryerson University in Toronto, he moved to the United States in 2014 and has been working in studios on set building, animation, photography, and filmmaking ever since.
His work has been published in the New Yorker, Time, Le Monde, and Wired, among others, and he has worked for a wide range of clients including Google, IBM, Hermes, Puma, Verizon, and Airbnb. He can be found most days playing around with ideas in his Brooklyn studio.
