Breakfast with the Director
Tues, May 24, 2022
For this edition of the semiannual Breakfast with the Director, 2022 Whitney Biennial artist Alex Da Corte will join Adam D. Weinberg, the Whitney’s Alice Pratt Brown Director, for an engaging conversation about his practice.
Alex Da Corte (b. 1980) is a Philadelphia-based multidisciplinary artist known for his pop-informed sensibility and embrace of theatricality. In his elaborate, surreal set pieces, banal objects and consumer goods serve as both actors and props. His campy détournements, staged in immersive environments, make these familiar references strange. Da Corte’s videos, sculptures, paintings, and installations ruminate on personal and cultural politics, alienation, and the complexities of the human experience.
