Mary Heilmann: Sunset at Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

Mary Heilmann: Sunset
Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

On now till 27 September

Matisse wanted his art to be like a comfortable armchair. Mary Heilmann's site-specific installation Sunset inaugurates the fifth-floor outdoor gallery of the new Whitney Museum of Art with sculptural chairs and pink wall elements that play off the geometries of the building in New York. The video Swan Song (1982), shown here for the first time, documents the destruction of the previous West Side Highway and includes footage of the Hudson River as well as the neighbourhood surrounding the Whitney’s new home.
