Mapping the Met

MFA Visual Narrative students map and visualize the Met Museum. Using site-specific research they have created a group atlas, combining drawn, digital, and interactive work to tell stories of the museum and its collections, architecture, and data. Together these maps highlight new perspectives and lenses through which the museum could be viewed, navigated, or imagined.

Presented by MFA Visual Narrative at the School of Visual Arts in collaboration with the Met MediaLab. Curated by Tim Szetela.
