Ethics of Looking

Saturdays, 4:30 pm

Floor 3, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center

Artworks on view at the Museum right now touch on the politics of race, identity, and cultural appropriation; power, access and privilege; the role of art in activism and social change; and more. As a platform for art that engages with pressing social issues, the Whitney Museum is committed to fostering dialogue and debate in this series of tours.

After you see Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World and An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney's Collection 1940–2017, join Whitney Museum Teaching Fellows for an open discussion about the politics and ethics of representation.

The Hearst Artspace and the Seminar Room are equipped with induction hearing loops and infrared assistive listening systems. Accessible seating is also available.
