Ask a Curator: Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror

Explore Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror with Scott Rothkopf, Senior Deputy Director and Nancy and Steve Crown Chief Curator, and Curatorial Assistant Lauren Young. Featuring Johns’s most iconic works along with many others shown for the first time, the exhibition is the most comprehensive retrospective ever devoted to his art and includes of a broad range of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures from 1954 to today. 

Appearing simultaneously at the Whitney and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the unique dual structure draws on the artist’s lifelong fascination with mirroring and doubles, so that each half echoes and reflects the other. For this event, Rothkopf and Young will provide an overview of the Whitney’s presentation and then take questions from the audience.
