21:53Robert Irwin, David Hockney & I, YOU, WE Close Sunday
Don’t miss these acclaimed exhibitions, all closing this weekend: Robert Irwin's Scrim veil—Black rectangle—Natural light, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, "one of the masterpieces of Light and Space, or Minimalism in general" (The New York Times); I, YOU, WE, which explores how artists negotiated the personal and collective politics of the 1980s and early '90s; and David Hockney: The Jugglers, the U.S. premiere of Hockney’s first video installation.
We hope to see you at the Whitney!
ROBERT IRWIN: SCRIM VEIL—BLACK RECTANGLE—NATURAL LIGHT, WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART, NEW YORK (1977)
Through September 1
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
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.
Through December 1
Test Pattern includes a selection of recent acquisitions by young and emerging artists that have entered the Museum’s collection in the past four years. Using a diverse range of media and processes, the artists in this exhibition relay information by manipulating surfaces, narratives, and images. By encouraging us to sift through layers of visual information, their works point to nuanced ways of understanding our physical and visual landscape.
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. One- and two-artist presentations provide a survey of each artist's work across a range of media.
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.

A HOPPER-INSPIRED POP-UP AT
THE FLATIRON BUILDING
Through October 6
In celebration of Hopper Drawing, a life-size window installation of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks (1942) is on view inside the landmark Flatiron Building's prow, one of the original architectural inspirations for this iconic painting.
THE NEW-YORK HISTORICAL SOCIETY SCREENS: HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE
Tuesday, September 3

I, YOU, WE considers how personal, social, and collective issues faced by artists in the 1980s and early 1990s—including HIV/AIDS—continue to resonate today. On September 3, the New-York Historical Society and filmmaker David France will screen How to Survive a Plague, which explores how a group of HIV/AIDS activists creatively defied the establishment to advance medical trials and treatment for millions.
