«The fall season is in full swing and the Met has never felt more vibrant. Our current exhibitions take our visitors through the full span of history, telling the story of art as no other museum can.» Where else can one experience a newly discovered mosaic from ancient Rome, Khubilai Khan's medieval China, the unique vision of Netherlandish master Jan Gossart, and the groundbreaking work of contemporary artist John Baldessari?

These large-scale exhibitions are joined by smaller shows exploring Joan Miró's Dutch-influenced paintings, Italy in the age of the Grand Tour, the artistic furniture of Charles Rohlfs, site-specific work by Icelandic artist Katrin Sigurdardottir, and the ritual rugs of Tibetan Buddhism. It is all here, reflecting the depth and breadth of both our scholarship and our collections.
