Blood bath on the roof of a New York museum

The Roof Garden Commission: Imran Qureshi

It was over 30°C when I was in New York, so by the time I had walked through Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art I was absolutely parched. So obviously the first stop was to the roof garden for a cool lemonade to quench my thirst.

I stepped outside only to be confronted by a blood bath. Rusty red splatters covered the entire terrace…but turns out it was just the Roof Garden Commission by Imran Qureshi.

It was amazing in that it created feelings of shock/repulsion/morbid curiosity as soon as you locked eyes on it. But pretty soon most of the tourists were distracted by the stunning views over the city. If only they had looked down and had seen the beautiful flower patterns in the chaos.

Top tip: The Metropolitan Museum of Art has signs everywhere saying tickets are $25, but this is just a suggested donation and you can pay whatever you want/can.

    Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading
    properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show
    the same outcome.
