Watch the Film

This film is a collective visual and audio portrait created by workshop participants over the course of Unravel’s week-long residency at the Whitney. Each frame of the film relates directly to one square foot of the Museum’s fifth-floor gallery, the exhibition space for Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016. Workshops were led by Unravel: Maria Anastassiou, Kelvin Brown, Joanna Byrne and Chris Paul Daniels.

Family Access Programs
For Kids on the Autism Spectrum Ages 6–12 Years

The Whitney invites families with kids on the autism spectrum for a sensory-friendly guided gallery tour before the Museum opens to the public. Families create their own works of art in a hands-on studio activity. Check back soon for additional information.

Artist's Choice Archive

Lorna Simpson hands families examples of the bronze frames used in her work in the exhibition Blues for Smoke.

Artist’s Choice workshops brought contemporary artists and families together to share their ideas and opinions and create artwork inspired by conversations and activities in the galleries.
