Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas has created a site-specific installation for The Met’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden.

The installation includes 16 black and white sculptures as is titled “The Theater of Disappearance” 

The Met’s history as an institution is a testimony to America’s path as a nation. Its doors opened in 1870 with a large collection of plaster casts of sculptural masterpieces,” stated the artist. “By the mid-twentieth century, genuine artifacts had displaced the copies.”
