Installation view, Robert Whitman: 61, Pace Gallery, New York, Oct 26 – Dec 21, 2018 © Robert Whitman Robert Whitman Detailsb. 1935, New York Read More Robert Whitman was a leading figure in New York’s Happenings movement from the late 1950s through the early 1960s.A pioneer of performance art and multimedia installation, he co-founded Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), a nonprofit organization dedicated to collaboration between artists and engineers. Throughout his career, Whitman has aspired to transform and transcend the limitations of images by emphasizing their spatial, temporal, and dimensional qualities.Although Whitman received his first one artist exhibition at the Rutgers affiliated gallery, Art House, in 1958, he debuted his Constructions at Hansa Gallery, New York, in 1959. He has composed and produced over forty performance works, nine of which, spanning from 1976 to 1983, were created in conjunction with Dia Art Foundation. Whitman’s work is held in numerous collections in the United States and abroad, including Centre Pompidou, Paris; Dia Art Foundation, New York; The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
