Moving house has never been this exciting
The New York City art world is abuzz—verging on fever pitch as it prepared for the opening of the newly relocated Whitney Museum this month.
Designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano the building itself is as much an iconic work of art as what’s on view inside it. Located at Washington Street and Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, many of the galleries have unobstructed views of the Hudson River. Head up to the 8th floor restaurant to take in the stunning panorama.
America Is Hard to See, the museum’s inaugural exhibition, finally shows off its unparalleled collection of modern and contemporary American art. This installation utilizes over 60,000 square feet of art space in the Whitney’s new light-filled, exquisite building.
Go see the challenging interpretations of art in the United States, from 1900 to the present, curated by the world’s most revered contemporary artists. It’s going to be a little nuts getting in for a while so we suggest you buy your tickets online so you can skip the lines.
