Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art
June 29 - October 13, 2013
Alex Katz, born in 1927, is one of America’s most important and honored living artists. This exhibition includes early landscapes and collages, as well as the enormous and brilliantly-colored portraits of family and friends that are a hallmark of the artist’s career. The presentation draws upon the Whitney’s extensive holdings of art by Alex Katz.
This exhibition was organized in association with the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

This exhibition takes the first in-depth look at the original drawings of Pop artist Peter Max, juxtaposing portfolios of his mostly black-and-white drawings on paper against many of the larger and more color-saturated works that they inspired in a variety of media. Covering a range of Peter Max’s subjects - portraits of friends and political figures, ocean sunsets and undulating landscapes, characters from Disney and The Wizard of Oz, planetary and celestial bodies in space, angels and demons, flowers and hearts, as well as Mona Lisas and Statues of Liberty to name only a few – these never-before-seen drawings, applied to almost any object or surface, result in one of the most recognizable and commercially successful artistic practices of our times.
