The Roof Garden Commission: Adrián Villar Rojas

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Argentine-Peruvian artist Adrián Villar Rojas created a site-specific installation for The Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Villar Rojas—known for his large-scale installations—has transformed the Cantor Roof. Sixteen sculptures that fuse human figures with replicas of nearly 100 objects from the Museum's collection, occupying a new black, white, and gray tiled floor, the installation also encompasses an environmental transformation of the space, including an extension of the existing pergola and new plantings, public furniture, and a newly designed bar.
