Sara Berman’s Closet is an artwork that recreates the extraordinarily orderly closet (ca. 1982) of artist Maira Kalman’s mother, Sara Berman, who wore only white clothes. Installed in the American Wing for six months, it participates in an animated dialogue with The Met’s newest permanent period room, the Worsham-Rockefeller Dressing Room, ca.1882. In this conversation, Amelia will talk about how the Closet came to be installed in the American Wing, and what rooms can tell us about their owners, while Alex and Maira will talk about Russia, the river Sluch, joy, despair, underpants, and the universal desire to create order and beauty in the monumental and mundane.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Sara Berman’s Closet, on view March 6, 2016–Sept 5, 2017.
