2. A Recreation of the House from Psycho on the Roof Garden of The Met Museum
Transitional Object (PsychoBarn), the new roof garden installation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The fourth annual site-specific roof garden installation has arrived at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Entitled Transitional Object (PsychoBarn), the installation by British artist Cornelia Parker is a celebration of American culture, blending the use of red barn materials with the artist’s rendition of Batse Hotel, the house made iconic from the 1960 film Psycho, and Edward Hopper’s painting House by the Railroad. With great attention paid to every detail, PsychoBarn is surrounded by the New York City skyline, creating great contrast. Transitional Object (PsychoBarn) will be on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Roof Garden, 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street through October 31, 2016.
