Lands, Waters, and Skies: Nikhil Chopra at The Met

Lands, Waters, and Skies is a live performance by Indian artist Nikhil Chopra, created for The Met’s galleries. For nine consecutive days, Chopra will inhabit various personae and interact with The Met collection. Akin to a nomadic traveler, Chopra will move through the Museum, following an itinerary of his own making that will query the Museum’s own organizational principles and logic.

Free with Museum Admission.
