A VISIT TO THE NEW WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

 

THE MUSEUM IS DESCRIBED AS:

“The Whitney Museum of American Art is the world’s leading museum of 20th-century and contemporary art of the United States. Focusing particularly on works by living artists, the Whitney is celebrated for presenting important exhibitions and for its renowned collection, which comprises over 19,000 works by more than 2,900 artists. With a history of exhibiting the most promising and influential artists and provoking intense debate, the Whitney Biennial, the museum’s signature exhibition, has become the most important survey of the state of contemporary art in the United States.”

I VISITED SEVERAL FLOORS WHICH INCLUDED PORTRAITS FROM THE WHITNEYS COLLECTION AND STUART DAVIS IN FULL SWING

ROBERT LONGO: MEN in the CITIES    –   For Men in the Cities, Robert Longo set up his camera on the rooftop of his apartment and threw a variety of objects at his friends, capturing their aggressive reactions in these remarkable photographs, created between 1977 and 1983. The jerks and spasms of Longo’s subjects, sharply dressed in business attire, have an elegance and grace that is entirely unexpected; protective reactions and exaggerated gestures have been turned into effortless and authentic choreography, a ballet of falls and stumbles, leaps and trips. The movements are fresh and vital, full of energy and life, even while they portray a sense of agony. They document an essence of human motion, boiled down to pure expression. This work later became the inspiration for his iconic Men in the Cities series of large-scale, monochrome charcoal and graphite drawings.
