Spotlight on Jean-Michel Basquiat and Shirin Neshat

Thurs, Nov 10, 2016
12 pm

Floor Six

Spotlight tours offer an opportunity to slow down and look closely at select highlights from Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney's Collection. Guided by a Museum docent, participants are encouraged to study and discuss works together. Each forty-five minute session either focuses on a single work of art, or explores a connection between two works. This session looks at Hollywood Africans (1983) by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Unveiling (1993) by Shirin Neshat.

November 2016–February 2017
Select Thursdays, 12 pm

Tours meet in the sixth-floor galleries.

No reservations are necessary, but tours are limited to fifteen people welcome to join on a first come, first served basis.

FM assistive listening devices with headsets or neck loops are available for public and private gallery tours and public programs. You may request receivers for tours at the Mobile Guide counter at the admissions desk on Floor 1.
