Art History From Home: 
Me, Myself, and I

Tues, June 16, 2020
6 pm

Online, via Zoom

This series of online talks by the Whitney’s Joan Tisch Teaching Fellows highlights works in the Museum's collection and recent exhibitions to illuminate critical topics in American art from 1900 to the present. During each thirty-minute session, participants are invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat.

The traditional genre of self-portraiture has grown exponentially in our selfie-driven age. This session will explore how, from the seemingly isolated space of the home or studio, artists including Cindy Sherman, Jimmy DeSana, and Kwame Brathwaite have used a range of mediums to reflect on, perform, and expand our understanding of the self.

Josh Lubin-Levy is a Joan Tisch Senior Teaching Fellow at the Whitney and recently completed his Ph.D. in Performance Studies at NYU. For the past ten years, Lubin-Levy has worked as a dance dramaturg and performance curator. He currently teaches in the department of Visual Studies at the New School.
