A work by contemporary artist Maio Motoko, on display at the Metropolitan Museum.

A truly impressive, beautiful, impactful use of the Met’s shoin space. The display of a contemporary work in a traditional format, in a traditional space, just works so beautifully… I wish more of the display spaces looked like this.
