Whitney Museum Tour: Rachel Harrison Life Hack
When the days are cold and the streets are grey, the Whitney offers a bright, warm oasis overlooking the Hudson River. Enjoy a tour with one of the Whitney’s Educational Fellows to learn about the New York City-based artist Rachel Harrison.
Funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Whitney’s National Committee, this exhibition hearkens to the pop art movement, which began in the Village. Harrison’s work pushes boundaries with materials that are quite familiar to all New Yorkers, from trash cans to soccer balls, televisions, and more!
Rachel Harrison’s first full-scale survey at the Whitney will track the development of her career over the past twenty-five years, incorporating room-size installations, autonomous sculpture, photography, and drawing. Harrison’s complex works—in which readymades collude with invented forms—bring together the breadth of art history, the impurities of politics, and the artifacts of pop and celebrity culture. The exhibition will include approximately one hundred works spanning the early 1990s to the present, drawn from private and public collections throughout the world.
Event entry into the museum will allow attendees to stay and enjoy the Museum’s collection of many Village-based artists and works.
This event is fully accessible.
