Witness The Protest

An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections From The Whitney’s Collection, 1940–2017

At Whitney Museum of American Art, from 18 August

This show looks at how artists from the 1940s to the present have confronted the political and social issues of their day. This is seen through the lens of the museum’s collection and offers a sequence of historical case studies focused on particular moments and themes. At the root of the exhibition is the belief that the artists play a profound role in transforming their time and shaping the future.
