Find out what’s in the diary this week.
Art: Regarding Warhol, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York City’s largest art museum endeavors to track Andy Warhol’s influence on contemporary art by presenting Warhol works with pieces that somehow address or respond to Warhol’s originals. Works by 60 artists, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman and Ai Weiwei will appear alongside Warhol originals.
Regarding Warhol, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY. Through Dec. 31.
Theater: Sleep No More, McKittrick Hotel
The stunning, ongoing installation Sleep No More is an unsettling interactive adaptation of Macbeth that should not be missed. UK troupe Punchdrunk turned a massive New York warehouse into an eerie mansion. Wander through on your own to discover hidden spaces or travel with the silent dancers who act as guides. The steep price tag is worth the investment.
Sleep No More, McKittrick Hotel, New York, NY. Through Dec. 1.
