This traveling career survey of the Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990) is in every way exquisite. Ms. Mohamedi settled early on drawing as a primary medium and abstraction as a mode. Her linear planes floating in space, or shattering into cascades, feel both timeless and futuristic, calligraphic and architectural. Beautifully installed here in a winding series of gray-walked corridors, her art (above, a photograph, and a diary page from the exhibition) feels rounded-out and complete, but also open-ended, which is a direction for the Metropolitan Museum of Art to head with its contemporary programming at the Breuer.
