This week’s Apollo Art Diary highlights new museums that are scheduled to open later this year.
While the Gilded Age manor of Henry Clay Frick on East 70th Street is renovated, the institution is moving to Marcel Breuer’s Brutalist building on Madison Avenue – formerly the premises of the Whitney and the Met Breuer. For the next two years, the Frick’s collections of paintings, sculptures and decorative arts will be shown chronologically across three floors, giving visitors a chance to engage with familiar favourites by the likes of Vermeer, Whistler, Monet and Fragonard in a markedly novel setting. The Frick Madison opens to the public on 18 March. Find out more from the Frick’s website.
