Whitney Signs:
SHERRIE LEVINE: MAYHEM

SAT, Jan 7, 2012
3 pm

Whitney Signs is a free American Sign Language gallery tour with voice interpretation. Join us this month for a tour of SHERRIE LEVINE: MAYHEM at 4 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 3–4 pm.

Sherrie Levine (b. 1947) has transformed and re-contextualized images and objects in her work since the late 1970s, often presenting them as installations that provide a compelling sense of context. This exhibition, developed as a project by the artist, includes works ranging from well-known photographs, such as After Walker Evans: 1–22, 1981, to recent sculptures, such as Crystal Skull: 112, 2010. The exhibition, conceived by the artist as offering constellations of older and newer works, will provide juxtapositions that provoke new associations and responses. The installation will also emphasize the powerfully seductive, tactile nature of Levine’s art, and the complex layers of reference and meaning that unfold between the ostensible sources and Levine’s own work.

Please note: we regret that complimentary tickets will no longer be available for ASL students. Museum staff/interpreters will not be able to sign student assignments.

Admission to tour and reception is free. Registration is required; RSVP to asl_tours@whitney.org. Tickets may be picked up at the check-in location in the Museum lobby.
