My favorite shows at the Met have been when the curators mix the old and new, the classical and the modern and the high and the low. The Met sculpture exhibition Is astounding and for this exhibition it takes a village of curators. Run don’t walk to see this show:
Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and The Body (1300–Now) is one of the best shows this year and every piece is a knock out.
Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body (1300–Now) is curated by Luke Syson, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Chairman of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, and Sheena Wagstaff, Leonard A. Lauder Chairman of Modern and Contemporary Art, both at The Met, with Brinda Kumar, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Met, and Emerson Bowyer, Searle Associate Curator of European Painting and Sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago, with the assistance of Elyse Nelson, Research Associate, European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, The Met.
