Meet The Met Breuer, New York City’s new landmark cultural institution. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s modern and contemporary art program is expanding to include a new series of exhibitions, performances, and artist commissions in the new home designed by the Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer on Madison Avenue and 75th Street.


Opening to the public on March 18, 2016, The Met Breuer will provide additional space for the public to explore the art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, such as inaugural season’s Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible, major thematic survey featuring unfinished works of art from the Renaissance to the present day, monographic exhibition of Indian modernist artist Nasreen Mohamedi, the first major survey in the United States of Kerry James Marshall, continuous in-gallery performances, a photography exhibit featuring early photographs by Diane Arbus (opening July 2016), and many more.


Celebrate the milestone art event during the Members Opening Week, March 8–13, with a weekend long of special programs and extended hours to experience the Museum’s new space.

Some of the weekend’s highlights include a series of 9-Minute Talks presented by over 30 artists, writers, performers, designers, curators, and Met staff.
