Online Patron Tour for
Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror

Thurs, Oct 14, 2021
6–7 pm

Online, via Zoom

Experience Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror during this virtual tour with Curatorial Assistant Lauren Young. The most comprehensive retrospective ever devoted to Jasper Johns features his most iconic works and many others shown for the first time. Conceived as a whole but displayed in two distinct parts, the exhibition appears simultaneously at the Whitney and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This unique dual structure draws on the artist’s lifelong fascination with mirroring and doubles so that each half of the exhibition echoes and reflects the other. 

Johns upended conventional notions of what an artwork can be. He helped spark movements including Pop art, Minimalism, and Conceptualism and has inspired successive generations of artists to this day. Young will share an overview of works in the exhibition, discuss how the curatorial team organized the installation, and answer questions following the tour. 

This event will have automated closed captions through Zoom. Live captioning is available for public programs and events upon request with seven business days advance notice. We will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made outside of that window of time. To place a request, please contact us at accessfeedback@whitney.org or (646) 666-5574 (voice). Relay and voice calls welcome.
