5. Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body at MET Breuer
The exhibition, Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body (1300-Now) at MET Breuer, is an examination of seven-hundred years of sculptural practice. Exploring the way artists have sought to replicate the “literal, living presence of the human body,” this exhibition will include approximately 120 works on loan from international museums and collectors. Each sculpture is a representation based on the artists’ personal or cultural experience in color, features, and clothing — some even incorporate human blood, hair, teeth and bones in an attempt to have the viewer “think deeply about our shared humanity.”
Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body (1300-Now) will be on view on the top two floors of MET Breuer from March 21 to July 22, 2018. MET Breuer is located at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street.
