whitneymuseum In tandem with the opening of America Is Hard to See, the Museum gave twenty paintings in the collection—including ones Edward #Hopper, Georgia #OKeeffe, Jasper #Johns—new, custom-designed frames. @BarkFrameworks undertook a large amount of historical research to complete the task. Check out their profile in the @WSJ for more! #NewWhitney [Above: Frame samples for Hopper’s Early Sunday Morning; below: the painting installed in the Whitney’s galleries.] 5d

whitneymuseum In the early 20th century, many American sculptors used animal subjects to hone their craft. These sculptures seem to have had a special attraction for Juliana Force, the Whitney’s first director, as reflected in this menagerie on view in the #NewWhitney’s first-floor gallery (which is free to the public!). 6d

At today's 99 Objects gallery program, Pennsylvania-born artist #LaToyaRubyFrazier discusses #Pittsburgh (1927) by #ElsieDriggs in the context of photography, industry, environmentalism, and her own artistic practice. #NewWhitney 1w

whitneymuseum Just caught the first performance of #AndreaGeyer: Time Tenderness on the eighth floor. Every afternoon this week, you can see this series of performances in which the artist uses movement, text, and song to reanimate the continuously forgotten history of women’s roles in American culture. #NewWhitney 2w

whitneymuseum The Whitney commissioned #YujiAgematsu to survey the Museum’s new building and its surrounding neighborhood during the second half of 2014. Using a range of lenses including a microscope and telescope, the artist captured buildings, flowers, construction materials, water, pavement, traffic, discarded objects, and the sky. See the products of these investigations in Yuji Agematsu: Walk On A,B,C, on view at the #NewWhitney through Monday. [Photograph by Gregor Quack] 2w

whitneymuseum #YujiAgematsu: Walk On A,B,C, opens tomorrow! Last year, Agematsu surveyed the #NewWhitney and its surrounding neighborhood. The products of these investigations are highly choreographed projections of sequences of 35mm slides. During the run of the exhibition, Agematsu will perform live sound improvisations—performance entry is available on a first-come, first-served basis (and free tomorrow and Sunday!).
