Undercurrents: Experimental Ecosystems in Recent Art
Curated by Anik Fournier, Michelle Lim, Amanda Parmer, and Robert Wuilfe, Curatorial Fellows in The Whitney Museum Independent Study Program 2009-10
Exhibition Hours: Tues-Fri, 12-6 pm; Sat 11-6 pm FREE
This exhibition considers the concept of ethical cohabitation – how to negotiate our differences within our shared environment. Cohabitation implies power relations in flux; relations that seem at first harmonious can in fact be antagonistic. In this context, how does one choose to act?
At The Kitchen, visitors are invited to experience or participate in projects and workshops by artists Rachel Berwick, Pablo Helguera, Alfredo Jaar, Tatsuo Miyajima, spurse, Apitchatpong Weerasethakul, and others. At various other sites, Undercurrents presents installations, performances, and activities by artists including Gina Badger, Amy Balkin, EcoArtTech, Lize Mogel, Andrea Polli, and Emily Roysdon.
Support for the Independent Study Program is provided by Margaret Morgan and Wesley Phoa, The Capital Group Charitable Foundation, the Whitney Contemporaries through their annual Art Party benefit, and an anonymous donor. Endowment support is provided by Joanne Leonhardt Cassullo, the Dorothea L. Leonhardt Fund of the Communities Foundation of Texas, the Dorothea L. Leonhardt Foundation, and the Helena Rubinstein Foundation.
