Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

For the first-ever facade commission at the Met, Mutu fills the niches flanking the museum’s entrance with four monumental bronzes that put an Afro-futuristic spin on a classical architectural feature known as a caryatid, a column or pillar that takes the form of an allegorical female figure.
