They Will Take My Island, Atom Egoyan’s collaboration with composer Mary Kouyoumdjian and projection artist Laurie Olinder on Arshile Gorky, which was scheduled for March 27 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art has been cancelled because the museum, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, is undergoing a thorough cleaning.
