America Is Hard to See, the inaugural exhibition in the Whitney’s new home, examines the themes, ideas, beliefs, visions, and passions that have preoccupied and galvanized American artists over the past 115 years. Numerous pieces from the Whitney’s collection that have rarely, if ever, been shown before appear alongside familiar icons, in a conscious effort to challenge standard art historical categories.

This focused tour with a Whitney teaching fellow will explore the sections of the exhibition installed in the fifth floor Neil Bluhm Family Galleries, which span 1965–present. By highlighting a handful of key works and important themes, this gallery talk aims to provide touch points and anchors for further viewing and exploration.
