Exhibitions
The Whitney's Collection: Selections from 1900 to 1965
Now on - Dec 31, 2019

With this exhibition, the Whitney Museum is going back to basics. It aims to showcase and celebrate the founding principles upon which the museum was conceived: the importance and uniqueness of American contemporary art.

Bringing together 120 works from the Whitney's collection, including many of the oldest works in its possession as well as more recent acquisitions, the exhibition features some iconic art by legends like Georgia O’Keeffe, Jacob Lawrence, and Norman Lewis. These greats are interspersed among some lesser-known visionaries whose art helps to frame and capture American life where words often fail.

Jason Moran
Now on - Jan 5, 2020

Groundbreaking musician and visual artist Jason Moran is bringing his first solo museum show to the Whitney. His innovative compositions fuse theatrical elements and jazz, with the help of soundscapes and stagecraft.

Moran notably challenges the conventions of the medium, while paying homage to golden-age jazz musicians, creating a form akin to avant-garde jazz.

The end result is an interdisciplinary performance that both alienates and captivates audiences. See the artist's own sculptural pieces amplified by his performance, accompanied by collaborations with renowned jazz musicians and other works of art.

Description

In the early 20th century the art world was heavily biased towards European art and older classics. The philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney wasn't having it. She started her own museum devoted to living American artists. It's prospered ever since, becoming a touchstone of artistic achievement of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Still devoted to American art, the Whitney houses 21,000 works by 3,000 artists across many media. You’ll find paintings, sculptures, drawings, videos, photography, and new media. We’re not saying you’ll get to feast your eyes on each and every piece, but you will get an insight into how American creative genius has manifested itself from 1900 to today.

Andy Warhol might be the most iconic name among the artists featured, but you’ll also get to meet other 20th-century titans such as Jasper Johns, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Edward Hopper.

In addition to the visionaries of the recent past, the Whitney is still very much dedicated to championing the new. Every two years the Whitney Biennial features the work of young up-and-coming American artists.

Like most New Yorkers, the Whitney has moved around the city, a lot. Its most recent move was in 2015 to a new Downtown building designed by famed architect Renzo Piano. The new building gives the Whitney more space than ever to showcase its massive collection of modern and contemporary American art.

Located on the West side of Manhattan in the Meatpacking district, the Whitney Museum of American Art right off the High Line is the place you’ll meet American genius of the now.

Is a huge gallery in a wonderful laberíntico space, which I love to walk up and down, no Elevator.....enjoining light, architect and colors, with a warm and light full collection which makes me understand who Mrs Vanderbilt was passionate about. I some time come just to feel the nice ambiance.... and share emotions looking at the artists she collected .
