Community Conversation: Around Day's End
Tues, Oct 27, 2020
Online via Zoom
The Whitney Museum, the Hudson River Park Trust, the Meatpacking Business Improvement District, and Manhattan’s Community Board 2 co-host a presentation and discussion with Whitney curators Laura Phipps and Christie Mitchell on Around Day's End: Downtown New York, 1970–1986. This exhibition includes selected works from the Museum's collection that explore downtown Manhattan and the waterfront as site, history, and memory. Phipps and Mitchell will share an overview of the show, including important themes and specific works, and participate in a moderated question and answer with attendees.
Around Day's End provides context for David Hammons's Day's End, a major public artwork located in Hudson River Park to be completed in late fall 2020. The exhibition is currently on view in the John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Gallery, on the Museum's first floor, which is accessible to the public free-of-charge.
