Abstract:

Encompassing works on paper, early films, sculptures, laser projections, and mixed-media and video installations, the exhibition spans over six decades of Whitman's innovative career, which has consistently pushed the boundaries of contemporary art. Since his emergence as part of New York's downtown art scene in the late 1950s alongside artists such as Lucas Samaras, Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, and Jim Dine, Whitman has continually engaged new technologies and challenged traditional genre conventions. Drawing together over 30 works from 1957 through 2018, the survey exhibition highlights a range of pivotal moments throughout Whitman's career and underscores his ever-evolving and experimental approach to art-making. Beginning with a selection of the artist's earliest works on paper from the late 1950s, 61 also includes his first sculptural installation Untitled (1957), an over 10-foot long thread hanging from the ceiling, and continues through to selections from his most recent series Soundies (2015), audiovisual works that feature a sonically evocative still image, such as a burning match or a diving board, complemented with an audio recording of the associative sound. Exhibition: Pace Gallery, New York, USA (26.10. - 21.12.2018).
