Met Rooftop Transformed by 100+ Replicas of Works from the Collection (Through Sunday, October 29)

    Date: 04/14/2017 - 10/29/2017

    Time: All Day

    Location: The Metropolitan Museum of Art (1000 Fifth Ave., Manhattan)

    Price: Included with pay-what-you-wish admission

    Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas has transformed the Cantor Roof with an intricate site-specific installation that uses the Museum itself as its raw material. Featuring detailed replicas of nearly 100 objects from The Met collection, The Theater of Disappearance encompasses thousands of years of artistic production over several continents and cultures, and fuses them with facsimiles of contemporary human figures as well as furniture, animals, cutlery, and food. Each object—whether a 1,000-year-old decorative plate or a human hand—is rendered in the same black or white material and coated in a thin layer of dust.
