#MetKids—Weave on a Mini Loom
 
03:07
Follow along and learn how to weave yarn on a mini cardboard loom. Materials: • cardboard • ruler • pencil • scissors • yarn • tape • needle (a large plastic embroidery needle works well) Instructions: Make Your Loom 1. Measure and mark two borders that are 1/2 inch (1.5 cm) from the top and bottom of a small rectangular piece of cardboard. 2. Along the top border, mark lines down from the top edge of the cardboard that are spaced evenly apart (1/4 inch, or .6 cm, if you want them close together; 1/2 inch, or 1.5 cm, if you want them farther apart). Mark an even number of lines (6, 8, 10, etc.). 3. Repeat along the bottom border, making sure you space the lines in the same way. 4. Cut a slit from the border to the edge along each line you marked. Thread Your Loom 1. Tape the yarn on the back of the loom, under the first slit. 2. Turn your loom to the front and thread the yarn through the first slit at the top, then the first slit at the bottom. 3. Turn your loom to the back and thread the yarn through the next slit at the top. 4. Turn your loom to the front and thread the yarn through the second slit at the bottom. 5. Continue to thread the yarn like this through the rest of the slits. 6. When you've finished, cut the yarn and tape the loose end on the back. 7. This lengthwise, up-and-down thread is called the warp. Weave 1. Thread the yarn through the needle. It might be helpful to tie it to the needle. 2. This horizontal, left-to-right, right-to-left yarn is called the weft. 3. On the front of the loom, start weaving the weft under the first warp on the left and over the second warp, then under and over until you reach the right end. 4. Pull the weft yarn all the way through, but leave a tail (about 3 inches, or 7.5 cm) on the left side. 5. Loop the needle under the last warp on the right, so it catches. Then weave it over and under all the way to the left side. Pull the weft yarn all the way through, but not so tight that you pull the warp threads together. 6. Push the second row of weft tightly against the first. 7. Continue to weave the weft back and forth, under and over the warp, and push each row of weft tightly against the rest. 8. When you'd like to change colors, cut the weft yarn, leaving a tail (about 3 inches, or 7.5 cm). 9. Begin the new weft color where you left off and continue to weave. 10. Add as many colors as you like. 11. Once you fill the loom, cut the last row of weft yarn, leaving a tail (about 3 inches, or 7.5 cm). 12. Thread the loose tails into the looped ends of the weft and cut any extra yarn that sticks out. Remove Your Weaving 1. On the back of the loom, remove the tape from the ends and cut the warp in the middle. 2. Turn the loom to the front and pull two adjacent warp yarns from the slits and knot them together. 3. Repeat with each pair of warp yarns to remove the weaving from the cardboard loom.

Jerusalem 1000–1400: Every People Under Heaven
 
01:53
A preview of the exhibition Jerusalem 1000–1400: Every People Under Heaven, on view at The Met Fifth Avenue from September 6, 2016, through January 8, 2017. http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2016/jerusalem The exhibition illuminates the key role that the Holy City played in shaping the art of the period from 1000 to 1400. While Jerusalem is often described as a city of three faiths, that formulation underestimates its fascinating complexity. This is the first exhibition to unravel the various cultural traditions and aesthetic strands that enriched and enlivened the medieval city. Over 200 works of art will be gathered from some 60 lenders worldwide. Nearly a quarter of the objects from Jerusalem, including key loans from its religious communities, some of which have never before shared their treasures outside their walls. This exhibition will bear witness to the crucial role that the city has played in shaping world culture, a lesson vital to our common history. #MetJerusalem

Valentin de Boulogne: Beyond Caravaggio
 
01:26
A preview of the exhibition "Valentin de Boulogne: Beyond Caravaggio," on view at The Met Fifth Avenue from October 7, 2016, through January 16, 2017. http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2016/valentin-de-boulogne The greatest French follower of Caravaggio (1571–1610), Valentin de Boulogne (1591–1632) was also one of the outstanding artists in 17th-century Europe. In the years following Caravaggio's death, he emerged as one of the most original protagonists of the new naturalistic painting. This is the first monographic exhibition devoted to Valentin, who is little known because his career was short-lived—he died at age 41—and his works are so rare. Around 60 paintings by Valentin survive, and this exhibition brings together 45 of them, including works from Rome, Vienna, Munich, Madrid, London, and Paris. Exceptionally the Musée du Louvre, which possesses the most important and extensive body of Valentin's works, has lent all of its paintings by the artist. Although he is not well known to the general public, Valentin has long been admired by those with a passion for Caravaggesque painting. His work was a reference point for the great realists of the 19th century, from Courbet to Manet, and his startlingly vibrant staging of dramatic events and the deep humanity of his figures, who seem touched by a pervasive melancholy, make his work unforgettable. #ValentindeBoulogne

Encompassing nearly 80 works—including 72 paintings—that span the artist's remarkable 35-year career, it reveals Marshall's practice to be one that synthesizes a wide range of pictorial traditions to counter stereotypical representations of black people in society and reassert the place of the black figure within the canon of Western painting. #KerryJamesMarshall #MetBreuer All artworks © Kerry James Marshall Images and photographs courtesy of: The artist and Jack Shainman Gallery, New York Imaging Department © President and Fellows of Harvard College © Museum Associates / LACMA / Licensed by Art Resource, NY Nathan Keay, © MCA Chicago Matthew Fried, © MCA Chicago Lenny Gilmore / LennyGilmore.com, © MCA Chicago Joe Ziolkowsky, © MCA Chicago John Casado Progressive Corporation Sean Pathesema Director: Christopher Noey Producer: Kate Farrell Editor: Sarah Cowan Camera: Sarah Cowan, Dia Felix Production Coordinator: Lisa Rifkind Original Music: Austin Fisher

"Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible" at The Met Breuer
 
01:44
A preview of the exhibition "Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible," on view at The Met Breuer from March 18 through September 4, 2016. http://met.org/1KBCRhS This exhibition addresses a subject critical to artistic practice: the question of when a work of art is finished. Beginning with the Renaissance masters, this scholarly and innovative exhibition examines the term "unfinished" in its broadest possible sense, including works left incomplete by their makers, which often give insight into the process of their creation, but also those that partake of a non finito—intentionally unfinished—aesthetic that embraces the unresolved and open-ended. Comprising 197 works dating from the Renaissance to the present—approximately forty percent of which are drawn from the Museum's own collection, enhanced by major national and international loans—this exhibition demonstrates The Met's unique capacity to mine its rich collection and scholarly resources to present modern and contemporary art within a deep historical context. Featuring Kelly Baum, Curator, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Andrea Bayer, Jayne Wrightsman Curator, Department of European Paintings Credits The exhibition is made possible by Leonard A. Lauder and The Dr. Mortimer and Theresa Sackler Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Jane and Robert Carroll Fund, Howard I. Hoffen & Sandra Hoffen, Kenneth and Rosalind Landis, Ann M. Spruill and Daniel H. Cantwell, and Northern Trust. It is supported by an Indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. The catalogue is made possible by the Samuel I.
