Art History From Home:
Stories from the Collection

Tues, Sept 8, 2020
6 pm

Online, via Zoom

Taking an expansive view of what an icon of American art can be, this session will take a new look at the Whitney’s collection and how it developed. The art in the Museum speaks to social, political, and artistic developments that have come to define—and to complicate—the term “American” in American art history throughout the first half of the twentieth century.

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.
