The Met: Manus x Machina Exhibit
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 5th Avenue, New York, NY, USA
UBS has a long history of projects with the Metropolitan Museum of Art and was called upon to erect one of its most complex scaffold installations to date for an exhibition at the Met’s Costume Institute entitled “Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”
Presented in the Robert Lehman Wing from May 5 through September 5, 2016, the scaffold took a month to install and could be seen through the transparent white fabric behind each exhibit. At the center of the exhibition was a large dome, which UBS erected and hoisted into place.
