‘Like Life Sculpture, Color, and the Body’ at The Met Breuer

Like Life Sculpture, Color, and the Body is a sculpture exhibition at the Met Breuer from March 21 – July 22, 2018.


Like Life Sculpture, Color, and the Body

This major international loan exhibition looks at seven hundred years of sculptural practice, from 1300 to now.

How have artists represented the human body? How do they make bodies look real or unreal?

About 120 works are drawn from The Met’s permanent collections, international museums, and private collections. The work includes masterpieces, rarely seen work, mannequins, and other models.
