The Met’s Annual Roof Garden Commission Features A Mini Solar System
Who doesn’t love spring in NYC? Not only are the cherry blossoms blooming and brightening up the city, but the art scene is flourishing as well.

The Metropolitan Museum Of Art just opened their Roof Garden Commission, with an exhibition by Berlin-based artist Alicja Kwade, titled ParaPivot. Using steel and stone to create two sculptures presented atop the roof, this installation is an embodiment of a mini solar system.

Known for her beautiful sculptures that border on the line between subjectivity, space and our perception of the world, ParaPivot is no different. The planets’ positions depend on how you move around the piece, framed by NYC’s hectic skyline. The multi-colored stones are comprised of materials from nine different countries and can be found on display until October 27th. Ready to head to the MET and reach astronomical heights (figuratively)?
