11. The Theater of Disappearance on the Roof Garden at The Met Museum
This season, The Metropolitan Museum of Art presents the work of Argentinian artist, Villar Rojas in the installation The Theater of Disappearance on the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. The ambitious site-specific installation runs throughout the entire roof garden, with 16 black and white sculptures conceived from the Met Museum’s own museum catalog, using advanced imaging to digitally scan and create 3-D models of the objects. The end result is a mix of the models of ancient treasures, and models of staff members and their families, incorporated into a dramatic installation augmented by furniture and an expanded pergola near the bar area.
The Theater of Disappearance will be on view through October 29, 2017 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Roof Garden, located at 1000 Fifth Avenue, 82nd to 83rd Streets.
