Whitney Signs:
Sharon Hayes: There’s so much I want to say to you

SAT, Jul 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 Sharon Hayes: There’s so much I want to say to you at 4 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 3–4 pm.

Sharon Hayes (b. 1970) is a New York–based artist whose work in photography, film, video, sound, and performance examines the nexus between politics, history, speech, and desire. This exhibition, conceived by Hayes for the Whitney’s third floor galleries, brings together existing pieces and newly commissioned works, all of which articulate forms of what Hayes calls “speech acts.” The works are presented within an environment designed by Hayes in collaboration with artist Andrea Geyer.

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. Please bypass the admissions line and pick up your tickets at the check-in location in the Museum lobby.
