The view from the top

The view south from the The Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, currently featuring Cornelia Parker's Transitional Object (PsychoBarn).
This past Monday night at the new Met Breuer, as part of its inaugural season, there was a preview of diane arbus: in the beginning which opened officially yesterday. The exhibition features more than 100 photographs that together “will redefine one of the most influential and provocative artists of the 20th century.” The collection focuses on the first seven years of her career and includes never-before-seen photographs from1956 to 1962 which was when she developed the idiosyncratic style and approach for which she has been recognized, praised, criticized, and copied all over the world.
Following its presentation at the Met Breuer, the  exhibition will travel to the SFMOMA opening on January 21, 2017 and running through April 30th.

While last Thursday, over at the big Met, they held “On Set: the Young Members Party 2016.” As you can see from the photographs, this was a great opportunity, especially on a beautiful summer night in New York, to take in the views from the Met’s roof from the south to the north and across to the east over the Central Park. The roof was featuring the  Roof Garden Commission: Cornelia Parker Transitional Object (PsychoBarn). There was also a viewing of Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.  

There was also a DJ besides cocktails. The evening ran from 7:30 to 11, a beautiful night to be out in New York.
