On April 30, 2015, the Whitney Museum inaugurated the opening of its new home with a dedication ceremony and ribbon-cutting featuring First Lady Michelle Obama, Mayor Mayor Bill de Blasio, architect Renzo Piano, and Whitney leaders, as well as a performance by the Wooster Group.
In this Whitney Stories video, curator Jay Sanders recalls the Museum’s history of presenting performance alongside visual art, and illuminates plans for performance at the Whitney’s new home, which opens in May with a 170-seat theater space.
2014 Biennial artist Jacolby Satterwhite discusses the inspiration for the movements in his videos and performances.
