An Iranian sculpture and architecture is the new guest of the Met Breuer

Recent exposition of the Met Breuer has allocated to an Iranian sculpture and architecture. Met Breuer is a museum of modern and contemporary in Manhattan, New York City in U.S.A.

Sixty years of art from the Iranian-born artist Siah Armajani are now on display at the Met Breuer. He is highlighting nearly 100 pieces of quietly revolutionary collage and architectural models.

Exile, the refugee crisis, and the role of public art are all addressed overtly, but not directly, in Follow This Line. Iranian sculpture and architecture 

The show charts Armajani’s trajectory as an artist throughout the 1960s and ’70s. Also his use of magic spells, propaganda speeches, public art installations, computer-generated graphics, and other ephemera to create a “language of exile.” Of particular note are the models from the 1974-75 series Dictionary for Building, of which only 150 pieces remain from what was originally thousands of compartmentalized building details. These ones sought to create a visual vocabulary of architecture through strange, nonsensical combinations of features.

More about the works of this Iranian sculpture 

Follow This Line is a phrase that constantly reappears in Armajani’s work and evokes the public nature and “claiming” of urban space. It refers to the way children walking home from school would drag their pencils across walls on the way. Iranian sculpture and architecture 

This Line is an installation of Bridge Over Tree in Brooklyn Bridge Park on the Empire Fulton Ferry lawn. The empire counts as the first staging of that piece since 1970. That example of built infrastructure deferring to nature will remain on display and open to the public until September 29, 2019.

Siavash Armajani was born in 1939 in Tehran, Iran. Armajani immigrated to the United States In 1960 to attend college, as he had family living in the US. Iranian sculpture and architecture
