Wade Guyton OS
"The Whitney Museum has a hit on its hands: a beautiful show organized by a young curator that makes a cogent case for the work of a young artist."—The New York Times
Through January 13, 2013
Wade Guyton
Over the past decade, New York–based artist Wade Guyton has pioneered a groundbreaking body of work that explores our changing relationships to images and artworks through the use of common digital technologies, such as the desktop computer, scanner, and inkjet printer. Guyton’s purposeful misuse of these tools to make paintings and drawings results in beautiful accidents that relate to the ways in which we haltingly navigate the visual and technological barrage of our time.

"The last great minimalist"—New York Magazine
Through February 3, 2013

Richard Artschwager
Richard Artschwager had his first solo exhibition at the age of forty-two, in 1965 at Leo Castelli Gallery. Since then his art has been shown throughout the world, and his enigmatic and diverse work has been influential, yet not thoroughly understood. This exhibition is a comprehensive review of Artschwager’s remarkable creative exploration of the mediums of sculpture, painting, and drawing, and is the first retrospective exhibition of Artschwager’s work since the one organized by the Whitney in 1988.

Images, like words, can trigger a cultural or emotional response to a shared national ethos. Artists have employed images—sometimes straightforwardly, often obliquely—in order to comment on a country, its people, its political or social goals, and its self-image. This exhibition explores this phenomenon through a rotating installation, drawn from the Whitney’s collection, of works on paper by a diverse group of artists including Robert Bechtle, Enrique Chagoya, Howard Cook, William N. Copley, Edward Hopper, Willard Midgette, Joseph Pennell, Benton Spruance, and Stow Wengenroth.
