Lucas Samaras’ Innovative Work at Metropolitan Museum of New York
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is presenting the exhibition “Lucas Samaras: Offerings from a Restless Soul”, that features over 60 works drawn from The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s rich collection of the highly idiosyncratic body of work made by Lucas Samaras.
The Metropolitan Museum’s installation, which runs Feb. 24 2014 through June 1 2014 includes a new gift of 17 objects that range from Samaras’ abstract work of the 1960s to his recent digitally based pieces.
Designed with the input of the artist, the installation will be installed in both the north and south mezzanine galleries in the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing for modern and contemporary art.
«Lucas Samaras: Offerings from a Restless Soul» is organized by Marla Prather, Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in collaboration with the artist.
