In the Balance brings together artworks from the Whitney’s collection that showcase how sculpture can explore painting’s domain and how painting can take up sculptural concerns. These works upset preexisting ideas of what art can be and move beyond established limits of what artists can do. Regardless of whether they pour across or sit directly on the floor, the sculptures included in this exhibition investigate color, surface, and optical perception. Paintings highlight ideas like balance and objecthood and engage with traditions long associated with three-dimensional art.

The Kaufman Gallery is equipped with an induction hearing loop. To use, please switch your hearing aid to “T.” Some video monitors in the galleries have headphone jacks; you are welcome to plug in your own headset or neck loop. Large Print Guides are available at the visitor services desk in the Main Lobby. Transcripts for works with sound and experiential videos for works that are inaccessible are available on our Mobile Guide and are free for people with disabilities.
