The Metropolitan Museum opens its new Met Breuer with two inaugural exhibitions, but that’s not all that’s happening in the art world this season.
On March 18, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will open its much-anticipated annex for modern and contemporary art in the old, beloved Whitney Museum building designed by Marcel Breuer on Madison and 75th Street. The new digs will include a fresh, subtle restoration, a Blue Bottle coffee shop and two new exhibitions: a survey of the little-known but wonderful Indian minimalist Nasreen Mohamedi and “Unfinished,” a look at incomplete works ranging from Titian to Rembrandt to Pollack. Expect lines out the door.
But, while the Met Breuer may be the art event of the season, there are plenty of other exciting exhibitions opening throughout the city this spring. Here are a few worth checking out.
