“Before I worked in a museum,” says Rebecca Gimenez, the head of the Whitney’s graphic design department, “it didn’t occur to me to wonder how the wall texts found their way onto the walls. They seemed inevitable, like the museum itself was talking to me.”
The video and performance collective, CHERYL, hosted a dance party to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Whitney’s new building.
Choreographer Elizabeth Streb’s STREB Extreme Action Company teamed up with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center‘s Youth Enrichment Services program (Y.E.S.) for a Whitney-sponsored residency.
