Visit the Latest Rooftop Exhibit at The Met

Argentinian artist Adrián Villar Rojas has transformed the Cantor Roof with an intricate site-specific installation now through Oct. 29th, that uses the museum itself as its raw material. Featuring detailed replicas of nearly 100 objects from The Met collection, “The Theater of Disappearance” encompasses thousands of years of artistic production over several continents and cultures, and fuses them with facsimiles of contemporary human figures as well as furniture, animals, cutlery, and food. Each object—whether a 1,000-year-old decorative plate or a human hand—is rendered in the same black or white material and coated in a thin layer of dust. Photograph by Jörg Baumann.

Shop 169 Years of Invention in One Place

Since 1848, Hammacher Schlemmer has served customers’ needs in ways that no one else does. From its humble beginnings as a hardware store on the Bowery, it has gone on to introduce the world to the pop-up toaster, the electric razor, and now The Killer Whale Submarine, a two-person watercraft that breaches and submerges just like the Orcinus orca after which it was designed. Flagship store open Mon.- Sat. 10 am- 7 pm, Sun. 11 am-6 pm.
