This traveling career survey of the Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi is the smaller of the two Metropolitan Museum's two debut exhibitions in the Breuer Building, once occupied by the Whitney Museum, and it 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 grey-walled corridors, her art feels rounded out and complete, but also open-ended, which is a direction for the Met to head with its contemporary programming at the Breuer.
