Hungarian architect Marcel Breuer (1902–1981) completed a four-story modernist marvel of an art museum at 75th Street and Madison Avenue 50 years ago, where the Whitney stood until it relocated to the Meatpacking District last year. And another city institution is now borrowing the keys: Per an eight-year agreement, the Met is rechristening the building the Met Breuer and devoting the landmark to its stellar collection of 20th- and 21st-century art. In March, it debuts with “Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible,” which includes incomplete works by masters ranging from Leonardo da Vinci to Andy Warhol, as well as a show by Indian modernist Nasreen Mohamedi. Beatrice Galilee, associate curator of architecture and design for the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Met, showed us around the place. (It’s not too shabby.)
