Like life, Sculpture, Color and the Body – The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Like Life displays a variety of human sculptures from varying periods, from modern date all the way to the 1300s. The exhibit’s driving point is to show how people have depicted the human body in sculpture, specifically the level of detail to realism. Rather than this being a single artist’s project, this is a group effort done and hosted by The Met, including classic period, European-origin pieces on loan. It’s an exclusive exhibit that runs till July 22nd, so do give it a look. The entire exhibit is being hosted at the Met Breuer (Madison Ave.) in Manhattan.
Objects as Friends - Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys – Gavin Brown’s Enterprise
until April 22nd
This art exhibition takes on a more traditional approach in its display media, hitting close to home with its subject matter. With over 300 color photographs, the artists follow the trail of discarded and broken objects, capturing every imperfection from their useless state. Gruyter and Thys have adapted the idea from the late Johannes, an old German painter from the later 1940s’.
