Like Life: Sculpture, Color and The Body @ The MET Breuer

July 27, 2018

The hubby and I were able to catch this exhibit at The MET Breuer before it closed last weekend (July 22nd) and I am so glad we did!  The show explored how artists have attempted to "replicate the literal, living presence of the human body" and explored the frailty of our existence with themes like loneliness, sexuality, faith, boredom and death. These pieces dated from 1300- present day, so much history, so many interpretations of the human experience, some are strikingly real, think Duane Hanson and his sculptures that look so REAL we lingered to see if we could catch them breathing.   What I admire the most of his work is the portrayal of everyday American working class life.  His work turns the regular Joe into art!  #brilliant 

 Here is a carefully curated selection of some of my favorite pieces.  

I have always enjoyed a day at the museum and can remember dragging my son along with me when he was too young to rebel.  There is so much stimulation of thought and feelings that I experience when I visit.

I hope you enjoyed this visual diary of this wonderful exhibition and I hope it inspires you to visit a museum this weekend!   What was the last exhibit you experienced? What are some that you are looking forward to?  Share in comments below.  And don't forget to subscribe!
