Gordon Matta-Clark's Day's End | David Hammons: Day's End

June 23, 2022

The Whitney, in collaboration with Hudson River Park, has developed a permanent public art project by David Hammons. Entitled Day's End (2014–21), this monumental installation is located in Hudson River Park along the southern edge of Gansevoort Peninsula, directly across from the Museum.

Hammons’s Day’s End takes inspiration from an artwork of the same name by Gordon Matta-Clark, who cut five openings into the dilapidated Pier 52 shed in 1975, transforming it into a "cathedral of light."
