Ask a Curator: At the Dawn of a New Age: Early Twentieth-Century American Modernism

May 17, 2022

Join Curator Barbara Haskell and Curatorial Assistant Roxanne Smith for an overview of At the Dawn of a New Age: Early Twentieth-Century American Modernism. Featuring over sixty works by fifty artists drawn primarily from the Whitney’s permanent collection, this exhibition offers an expanded understanding of the complexity of American art produced between 1900 and 1930. While visitors will likely be familiar with well-known artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Marsden Hartley, At the Dawn of a New Age will also present work by many similarly groundbreaking modernists who have been largely forgotten. For this event, the curator will provide an introduction to the exhibition followed by an opportunity for audience members to ask questions.

As we approach the holiday season, please know we are expecting to be busier than usual with the potential for long entry lines. Please arrive up to 15 minutes before your ticketed time to allow sufficient time for entry, including bag checks and other security measures. We kindly ask at this time that if it is possible to leave strollers and large bags at home please do so. We look forward to welcoming you for your visit.
