4. Alicja Kwade: Parapivot at the MET Roof Garden

Beginning on April 16th, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Roof Garden Commission will present Alicja Kwade’s Parapivot. Alicja Kwade is a Berlin-based artist who seeks to “heighten both the mystery and absurdity of the human condition in order to enhance our powers of self-reflection.” Kwade has created two sculptures for The Met made out of steel and stone to capture a miniature solar system.

This piece will be on display on the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden until October 27, 2019. Parapivot will be Kwade’s first solo exhibition at a museum in the United States.
