Whitney on Site: New Commissions Downtown
In May, the Whitney Museum will open its new downtown location in the Meatpacking District with a series of large scale commissioned installations. The Whitney has chosen three artists to participate, beginning next month through October with Guyton\Walker, Tauba Auerbach, and Barbara Kruger. Each temporary work will utilize digitally printed vinyl and decals to be mounted on various structures at the site. The Guyton\Walker installation will open for the Whitney's American Art Awards on May 6th and will be open to the public on May 8th through June 23rd.
