Floor Five, Neil Bluhm Family Galleries

Contemporaries and Contemporaries Patron members

The first large-scale thematic exhibition presented in the Whitney’s downtown home, Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016 explores the ways in which artists and filmmakers have dismantled and reassembled the conventions of cinema—screen, projection, darkness, movement—to create new kinds of sensory experience and question the ways in which technology continues to transform our lives. Each tour, led by a Whitney Teaching Fellow, will explore the exhibition’s themes by addressing key works, from early twentieth-century experimental films to contemporary works in installation, video, and virtual reality. A wine reception will be open before and after each tour.
