“What You See Is What You See”: Frank Stella

This three-week course offers an in-depth exploration of the Frank Stella retrospective. By focusing on different themes in the galleries each week, detailed attention will be given to the works on view, showcasing Stella’s prolific output from the mid-1950s to the present, including paintings, reliefs, maquettes, sculptures, and drawings. 

Jennie Goldstein, a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney Museum since 2011, is currently a Ph.D. candidate in art history at Stony Brook University where she studies late modern and contemporary art. Her area of focus is on intersections of visual art and dance, and her in-progress dissertation, “Moving Bodies, Moving Things: Convergences of Art and Dance, 1960–1975,” reveals historical underpinnings for the recent surge in dance in museums. Prior to pursuing her doctorate she worked as a curatorial assistant and senior curatorial assistant at the Whitney, where she contributed to many exhibitions and publications.

Three–part course: Thursdays, November 5, 12, 19
Afternoon session: 4–5:30 pm

Enrollment: $385
