|We hope to see you at the Whitney!|
Through August 11
Stewart Uoo and Jana Euler are emblematic of an emerging group of artists whose work interrogates how the social, technological, and cultural forces at work today shape the contemporary "self.” In this exhibition, Uoo’s dystopic cyborg-mannequins are juxtaposed with Euler’s multilayered figurative painting within an environment design by Uoo. Seen together, the works suggest new ways of thinking about contemporary portraiture.
ROBERT IRWIN: SCRIM VEIL—BLACK RECTANGLE—NATURAL LIGHT, WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART, NEW YORK (1977)
Through September 1
"One of the masterpieces of Light and Space, or Minimalism in general"—The New York Times
Scrim veil—Black rectangle—Natural light, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1977), by Light and Space artist Robert Irwin, has not been exhibited since its 1977 debut—a pivotal moment that set the course for Irwin’s subsequent practice. Made specifically for the Museum’s fourth floor, the large-scale installation engages the Whitney’s iconic Breuer building and the light emanating from the gallery’s oversize window. This is a unique opportunity to view a work that, per the artist’s direction, may be shown only in this setting.
"I," "you," "we": three very commonplace words. These pronouns—with all their implied complexities of meaning—provide an unexpected guide for assessing works of art from the 1980s and early '90s by artists like Robert Mapplethorpe, Nan Goldin, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, among others. What becomes apparent in this survey of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and photographs is how the personal, social, and collective issues and concerns of the artists of this time are still relevant several decades later.
DAVID HOCKNEY: THE JUGGLERS
Through September 1
This exhibition marks the U.S. premiere of David Hockney’s first video installation, The Jugglers, June 24th 2012 (2012). Filmed by eighteen cameras, a group of jugglers make up a vibrantly kinetic composition as they move across a grid of eighteen screens, accompanied by a lively musical soundtrack. The multiple perspectives place the choice of where to look with the viewer, demonstrating the artist’s exploration of technology’s ability to open up new ways of looking at, and making, images.
Through October 6
"Illuminating and thrilling"—The New York Times
Hopper Drawing is the first major exhibition to survey the drawings and working process of Edward Hopper (1882–1967), pairing many of his iconic oil paintings, including New York Movie (1939) and Nighthawks (1942), with their preparatory studies and related works. Hopper’s drawings reveal the continually evolving relationship between observation and invention in the artist’s work, and his abiding interest in motifs— New York’s urban fabric, the movie theater, the bedroom, the road—to which he would return throughout his career.
FROM CALDER TO O'KEEFFE
"One of [the Whitney's] best in years"—The New York Times
American Legends: From Calder to O’Keeffe showcases the Whitney’s deep holdings of artwork from the first half of the twentieth century by the eighteen leading artists: Oscar Bluemner, Charles Burchfield, Paul Cadmus, Alexander Calder, Joseph Cornell, Ralston Crawford, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Charles Demuth, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, Gaston Lachaise, Jacob Lawrence, John Marin, Reginald Marsh, Elie Nadelman, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Joseph Stella. Rotations of art and of artists will be made during the exhibition’s yearlong duration.
Artists frequently think beyond the unique object, choosing to work with a group of closely related images that together express an artistic vision in its entirety. This ongoing installation, drawn from the Museum’s extensive holding of works on paper, presents examples of this creative process. Works by Dotty Attie, Mark Bradford, Carroll Dunham, Dan Flavin, Jasper Johns, Elizabeth Murray, Lorna Simpson, Joyce Trieman, and Terry Winters, among other artists, will be shown in rotation.
Wednesday, August 7 7 pm
Artist Park McArthur will present a selection of letters, images, and ephemera by artists included in the exhibition I, YOU, WE. Personal and professional correspondence housed in the Whitney Museum Library archive show a time that turned letters into emails, and writers into typists looking at screens against a backdrop of identity politics, class warfare, and censorship. Together, McArthur and Shira Brisman, Mellon Postdoctoral fellow in art history at Columbia University, will discuss the epistolary mode in relation to the exhibition’s themes.
