Whitney Signs:
Singular Visions

SAT, Oct 1, 2011
3 pm

Whitney Signs is a free American Sign Language gallery tour with voice interpretation. Join us this month for a tour of the Museum's new installation of Singular Visions at 4 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 3–4 pm.

Singular Visions presents twelve postwar highlights from the Museum’s holdings, each in its own space, in order to create intimate and compelling encounters with a single work of art. Each piece was chosen to convey a distinct impression and a specific sense of its maker’s vision, whether somber or celebratory, figurative or abstract, quiet or bold. Through their variety of mediums, sizes, styles, and subjects, the works in Singular Visions encourage a range of powerful experiences and reveal how contemporary artists have stretched the very boundaries of what an artwork can be.

The following artists are currently included in Singular Visions: Eleanor Antin, Jonathan Borofsky, Paul Chan, Anne Collier, Willem de Kooning, Leon Golub, Robert Grosvenor, Eva Hesse, Matthew Day Jackson, Aleksandra Mir, Robert Morris, and Ree Morton.
