Conversations with ... Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Free with Museum admission

Lesley Ma, Ming Chu Hsu and Daniel Xu Associate Curator of Asian Art, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Met

Join experts for lively 30-minute dialogues on works of art on view in the galleries. In this talk, join a Met curator to learn more about artist Michael Lin’s site-specific installation that extends from the Great Hall up into the Great Hall Balcony, transforming the passageway. Inspired by the patterns on two 19th-century Chinese porcelain vases in The Met collection, Lin’s work interrogates the hierarchies embedded in museum displays. Join us to explore Lin’s intervention into The Met’s architecture and collection. Presented in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and in conjunction with the exhibition Michael Lin: Pentachrome.

Free with Museum admission. Note: Space is limited; first come, first served.

Masks are strongly recommended. See our visitor guidelines.
