Floor One, The Whitney Shop
In Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016, visitors are invited to journey beyond traditional two-and-three-dimensional art experiences into one that is truly transporting. By presenting compelling multidimensional works of art, Dreamlands fills the Museum’s fifth-floor galleries with an all-surrounding, phantasmagoric experience.
Inspired by this exhibition, the Whitney Shop has invited Radiant Human, the portrait practice of Portland-based visual artist Christina Lonsdale, to create photographs of shop patrons and their auras. This ten-day residency in the shop during Museum hours, December 7–17, offers patrons the opportunity to see their own human atmosphere and experience for themselves the art of aura photography, a process that visually captures the electromagnetic energy given off by a person or an object.
Reservations are required; $35 for one portrait including a personal interpretation by the artist. Please note: A limited number of walk-in appointments will be available each day; arrive early to the Whitney Shop for more information.
