Charles Ray. Figures on the ground

Exhibition January 31 − June 5, 2022
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York presents the exhibition "Charles Ray. Figures on the Ground.".

The exhibition introduces the work of one of the most important artists of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. The exhibition combines sculptures from all periods of Charles Ray's career with key photographs from the 1970s and 1980s, exploring key aspects of his complex and sometimes provocative work.

The exhibition is a set of thoughtfully placed works whose arrangement in space creates subtle connections between objects and viewers. Ray Charles's sculptures evoke a desire to prolong thoughtful contemplation, pose many poignant questions, and provide no direct answers.
