Rapp Lecture on Contemporary Art: Adam Weinberg

Wednesday October 24, 7-8:30 pm

Join Adam D. Weinberg, the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Alice Pratt Brown Director for a talk exploring the history of the Whitney Biennial. The Whitney’s signature survey of the current state of contemporary art in the U.S. was inaugurated in 1932. The Biennial is a tradition that goes back to the institution’s historical roots while providing a barometer of the new, and a response to the dramatically shifting cultural, social, and political landscape of the present.

Adam D. Weinberg became the Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum in October 2003. During his tenure, the Whitney has presented major exhibitions on a range of artists, including William Eggleston, Yayoi Kusama, Sherrie Levine, Glenn Ligon, Gordon Matta-Clark, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ed Ruscha, and Jeff Koons; offered award-winning educational programs; and experienced dramatic growth in the permanent collection; and, in 2015, opened its new 220,000-square-foot building in the Meatpacking District.

 

The Rapp Lecture on Contemporary Art features distinguished international leaders in the contemporary art world, including artists, curators, critics, scholars, and other luminaries. The program was established in 2009 in honour of Carol and Morton Rapp.
