HEART OF GLASS
French contemporary artist Jean-Michel Othoniel is a master of sequence best known for his elaborate large-scale installations of linked glass baubles. Now you can see them up close when the Brooklyn Museum presents a survey of his magical works from the past 25 years in My Way. The exhibition, displayed throughout the museum, will feature his movements in contemporary art through Arte Povera, minimalism, conceptual art, and surrealism, from his early works made of sulfur and wax to his more recent sculptures made of colorful glass that resemble huge DNA models in 3-D and necklaces fit for a giant.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: Aug. 17. Continues through Dec. 2, 2012
