Nikhil Chopra: Lands, Waters, and Skies
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
At the heart of Nikhil Chopra's durational performances is the contemplative act of drawing. During his residency at The Met, Chopra will interrogate how identities are formed and understood through a series of dramatic character transformations and the creation of a monumental drawing. Lands, Waters, and Skies is a live performance by Indian artist Nikhil Chopra, created for The Met's galleries. For nine consecutive days, Chopra will inhabit various personae and interact with The Met collection. Akin to a nomadic traveler, Chopra will move through the Museum, following an itinerary of his own making that will query the Museum's own organizational principles and logic. The performance begins at the Main Steps on the David H. Koch Plaza; and travels to Floor 1, Great Hall, and Egyptian Art, Gallery 131, The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing.
Venue: The Met Fifth Avenue
