Richard Artschwager!

Oct 25, 2012–Feb 3, 2013

Richard Artschwager’s first solo exhibition was in 1965 at the age of forty-two at Leo Castelli Gallery. Since then his work has been shown throughout the world, and his enigmatic and diverse oeuvre has been influential, yet not thoroughly understood. This exhibition is a comprehensive review of Artschwager’s remarkable creative exploration of the mediums of sculpture, painting, and drawing and the first retrospective exhibition of Artschwager’s work since one organized at the Whitney in 1988.

Richard Artschwager! is organized by Jennifer Gross, Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Yale University Art Gallery.

This exhibition is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, in association with the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven.

Significant support for the Whitney’s presentation is provided by the National Committee of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Broad Art Foundation, The Andrew J. and Christine C. Hall Foundation, Allison and Warren Kanders, Norman and Melissa Selby, Alice and Tom Tisch, Mr. and Mrs. Harrison Augur, Diane and Adam E. Max, Francis H. Williams, and Ruth and William S. Ehrlich.
