For all of us who find New York a desirable destination, the former Whitney Museum of American Art’s Marcel Breuer building has reopened as the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art’s Met Brueur. Built in 1966, the structure is a masterpiece of midcentury architecture restored to expose Breuer’s original design intent while also reactivating the space with a fresh curatorial spirit. One of the two exhibitions to launch the reopening is titled Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible and connects contemporary artwork to those that are centuries old by bringing to question what makes a work complete. Definitely not lesser in importance in its quiet departure from Western art, is a survey of minimal drawings and photographs by Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi. We will be keeping our ears to the ground as this new branch of the Met weaves its way into the rich culture of New York City.
