"My Metropolitan" at the Feuer Mesler Gallery

This week, BTR went to check out My Metropolitan by Ry Rocklen at the Feuer Mesler Gallery. The gallery is difficult to find as it lies behind an unassuming, apartment-style door and you have to press a buzzer to get in, but it’s well worth the visit. This particular show features a collection of sculptures derived from images of ancient artifacts taken at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The front of the sculptures feature a decal of an artifact, and the mirror behind reveals a unique ceramic backing to each image. These arrangements help give the artifacts a new element of meaning.

Feuer Mesler Gallery is on 319 Grand St. on the 2nd floor.
