Previously on view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 209 and Gallery 305
Exhibitions are free with Museum admission.

The Met presents a network of crossroads, among places, eras, and cultures. At two prominent locations within the Museum—“crossroads” where major paths intersect—new installations examine the idea of cultural interconnectedness. Drawn from diverse areas of the collection, Crossroads tells thought-provoking stories about shared ideas and artistic forms from around the world, presenting the global history of humankind as a narrative of intersections and exchange.

The first two installations will address overarching themes that have inspired artists across cultures: Power and Piety, and Empires and Emporia.

The exhibition is made possible by The Giorgi Family Foundation and Barbara A. Wolfe.

Corporate sponsorship is provided by Citi.
