by Eliza Rosenberry In reaching out to Moroccan architect Adil Naji and his network of artisans to develop the new Moroccan Court, the Metropolitan Museum of Art developed a fascinating permanent installation that elevates the New Galleries for Art of the Arab Lands. Most of the wing is arranged as an exhibition of objects, but in contrast, the Moroccan Court, completed over the course of nine months—Naji likens this to the birth of a child—is an example of what museums can do using global connections: create an encapsulating installation that transports visitors across the world and 500 years ago.
