Whitney Museum Reopens

Thu Sep 3, 2020
Various times
6 and up

The Whitney opens its doors once again, with opportunities to see the exhibits that were on display when the museum closed in March.

Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945—a monumental exhibition that earned critical raves in its first month—and Cauleen Smith: Mutualities, which explores experimental works by the artist that reflect on memory and Afro-diasporic histories, will remain on view through January 31, 2021.

Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist, featuring forty-five paintings by the visionary symbolist, will now continue its run through November 1, 2020. And a new exhibition, Around Day's End: Downtown New York, 1970–1986, debuts now to set the stage for the completion later this year of David Hammons's Day's End, an eagerly awaited public art project by one of the most important and influential artists of our time
