Westside Exposure: Whitney Staff Art Show

June 23–July 13, 2017

Westbeth Gallery, 55 Bethune Street

From its origins in Greenwich Village in 1914 to its relocation to the Meatpacking District in 2015, the Whitney Museum of American Art has remained devoted to living artists at critical moments in their careers. Many of the Museum’s staff members, who provide crucial support to the development, implementation, and management of exhibitions, programs, and publications, are artists themselves. For the second time in its history, the Whitney’s Staff Art Show will be held in a public space, offering staff an opportunity to share their work with a broad audience and deepen connections with the Westside community. This exhibition will include over 70 works in a wide range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, printmaking, collage, and video, reflecting the diversity of artistic practice among the Whitney’s talented staff.

Westside Exposure: Whitney Staff Art Show is organized by Michelle Donnelly, curatorial fellow, and Melinda Lang, curatorial assistant.
