Charles Ray: Figure Ground presents the work of one of the most important artists of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. For over five decades, Ray has experimented with a wide range of methods, including performance, photography, and sculpture, the medium for which he is best recognized today. The exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art—on view from January 31 through June 5, 2022—marks the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in New York in almost 25 years. It is also the first to include sculptures from every period of his career and to unite them with important photographs from the 1970s, resulting in a comprehensive investigation of his oeuvre. A focused presentation featuring 19 objects and organized in close collaboration with the artist, the show introduces Charles Ray to a new generation of viewers while making his work fresh for those already familiar with it.

The exhibition is made possible by the Barrie A. and Deedee Wigmore Foundation.
