We’re excited to reopen and welcome audiences back to the Whitney. Before or after you visit—or even if you can’t make it to the Museum in person right now—join us for a series of thirty-minute Zoom talks to get reacquainted with our current exhibitions.

In this talk focusing on Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists Remake American Art, 1925–1945, teaching fellow Xin Wang will spotlight José Clemente Orozco’s time in the United States and his importance for American artists such as Jacob Lawrence and Jackson Pollock.
