camminando + exhibitions | The Metropolitan Museum

Framing the Sun
I was disappointed by Tomas Saraceno's roof installation; while allusive to entering to space, it is mainly perceived as an object. The interior polyhedral forms are not strong enough while they could have been used as focal structural elements. Nevertheless I enjoyed the kaleidoscopic views and of course the mirrored interactive self portraits are always enjoyable.

 Not to be missed: Schiaparelli & Prada; a masterpiece of exhibition design at the intersection between art and fashion, portraying the conversing vocabulary of the two fashion masters.

 And of course, the permanent collection, including artifact from ancient classical Greek Roman architecture and sculpture
