American artist Dan Graham (born 1942, Urbana, Illinois) will create a site-specific installation atop The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden-the second in a new series of commissions for the outdoor site. The installation will comprise one of Graham's unique steel and glass pavilions structures for which he has been renowned since the early 1980s-set within a specially engineered landscape designed in collaboration with Swiss landscape architect Gunther Vogt (born 1957, Balzers, Liechtenstein.) Constructed of hedge rows and curves of two-way mirrored glass, the pavilion will be both transparent and reflective, creating a changing and visually complex environment for visitors.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
