Exhibition Description

Using 750 glass-fiber-reinforced concrete tiles, Halsey constructed a 22-foot-tall structure that resembles an Egyptian-style temple. Four large-scale sphinx statues with faces that are portraits of Halsey’s immediate family and her life partner stand as guardians, through which visitors can walk. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue , 82nd Street New York, NY. Runs through Oct. 22, 2023.
