Making Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror

This conversation brings together the co-curators of Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror to explore the making of this unprecedented retrospective of a singular artist staged simultaneously in New York City and Philadelphia. 

Scott Rothkopf, Senior Deputy Director and Nancy and Steve Crown Chief Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Carlos Basualdo, Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, are joined by Ann Temkin, Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, for a conversation about the curatorial process, the show’s mirrored structure, and how the project engages a long-standing methodology within Johns’s practice itself. 

This program is funded by the Flack Family in memory of long-time Whitney docent Marianne L. Flack. 

COVID-19 vaccination and face coverings are not required but strongly recommended. Book tickets in advance and review our visitor policies.
