Exhibition: Like Life: Sculpture, Color and the Body (1300 - Now)
Artists: Various Artists
Venue: The Met Breuer
Dates: Until July 22nd, 2018


'Like Life' displays a variety of human sculptures from varying periods, from modern times and dating all the way back to the 1300s. The exhibition's driving point is to show how people have depicted the human body in sculpture, specifically the level of realism and attention to detail. Rather than this being a single artist’s project, this is a group effort organized and hosted by The Met, including pieces on loan from the classic period of European-origin.

Exhibition: Objects as Friends
Artists: Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys
Venue: Gavin Brown Enterprise
Dates: Until April 22nd, 2018


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.

The entire venue hopes to encourage people to interact with their current world through a display of art.
