Cory Arcangel has been included in several exhibitions at the Whitney Museum, among them the 2004 Biennial and his 2011 full-floor solo show, Pro Tools—both before the age of 35. In this Whitney Stories video, Arcangel speaks about his relationship to pop culture and avant-garde art, the complexities of working in the constantly-evolving realm of new media, and his history of taking risks at the Whitney.
This video is part of an ongoing series which sheds light on the Whitney’s plans through conversations with artists, Whitney staff, and integral members of the construction team—view more Whitney Stories videos below.
