According to the source, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has received his mixed-media work. The name of the art is The Broken Five. It launched at the artist’s solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth in New York that same year.

As of the source, The Broken Five has received a number of purchasing offers from the Metropolitan Museum since it went on view at Hauser & Wirth. However, the pandemic has slowed the acquisition process still museum is at finalizing the purchase.

One of the officials at Met said that Ian Alteveer played an integral role in the purchase of The Break Five. He worked as curator of modern and contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum of ArtComing to The Broken Five, it is a kind of variable vision that incorporates so much of [Johnson’s] practice today—something that is a painting and a sculpture all at once. As per the source, the purchase process also aligns with the collection’s broad interest in expanding and centering Black artists.

Carousel State

According to the reports, the museum will allow people to view Broken Five in the coming months. On the other hand, Carousel State remains one of the fine arts of Gilliam. These two artworks create an awesome response from each one. Moreover, the arts represent traditions about challenging and running with modes of abstraction. That speaks to all kinds of different contexts and stories.
