Location: Floor Eight, Tom and Diane Tuft Trustee Room
Open to Circle, Fellow, and Sponsor members
95 Horatio Street is a site-specific work by the artist Do Ho Suh (b. 1962), presented on the facade of the building across the street from the Whitney and the southern end of the High Line.
Suh's billboard-sized, digitally rendered image evokes a time when commercial trains transported goods along the High Line, which originally continued south to Spring Street. His project mines the history of the Whitney’s immediate neighborhood, and continues his ongoing exploration of architecture, memory, and identity. Suh's work is part of an ongoing series commissioned by the Whitney in in partnership with TF Cornerstone and High Line Art.
During this event, curatorial assistant Christie Mitchell, who organized the project, will speak with Suh about 95 Horatio Street and related site-specific projects, including Fallen Star, a permanent installation on the University of California San Diego campus. The event will conclude with a screening of a documentary about Fallen Star.
Circle, Fellow, and Sponsor members are invited to this event: The invitation is for two individuals per membership household. Registration instructions will be provided by email.
