Martine Gutierrez: Supremacy 
Sept 2022–Mar 2023

This fall, the Whitney will display Martine Gutierrez’s Supremacy (2021) on the facade of 95 Horatio Street. Supremacy, a photo-performance in the artist’s signature chameleonic style, presents a newly created scene in which Gutierrez poses as a model surrounded by Barbie-like dolls. The work continues the artist’s investigation of how media propagates archetypes of women, beauty, and authenticity. A photograph reproduced as a 17-by-29-foot vinyl print, Supremacy will go on view in September, weather permitting, on the southwest corner of Gansevoort and Washington Streets, located directly across from the Whitney and the High Line. The work is the next in a series of public art installations organized by the Museum in partnership with TF Cornerstone and High Line Art.

The project is organized by Marcela Guerrero, Jennifer Rubio Associate Curator.
