Art History from Home: Salman Toor: How Will I Know

Thurs, Feb 11, 2021
12 pm

Online, via Zoom

Learn more about the work of Salman Toor, whose first museum solo exhibition, Salman Toor: How Will I Know, is currently on view in the Whitney Museum’s Lobby Gallery. Toor’s intimately scaled figurative work of imagined vignettes references historic styles while conveying the vulnerability and sense of community in queer, diasporic identity and the artist’s own lived experience. 

Xin Wang is a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney and a Ph.D. candidate in modern and contemporary art at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU.  She is the curator of numerous exhibitions in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Her latest writings have appeared in Art in America, Art Agenda, and Wallpaper (Chinese edition). She is currently planning an exhibition that explores Asian Futurisms for the Museum of Chinese in America in New York City.
