Please join us for the opening reception of ‘Jack Whitten. Self Portrait With Satellites’, a commemorative survey celebrating Jack Whitten’s (1939 – 2018) innovative transfiguration of paint and his profound ability to materialize philosophical, scientific, and mathematical concepts through abstraction.
This landmark presentation is the first exhibition in LA devoted to the artist in nearly 30 years, and brings together self-portraits and paintings from Whitten’s personal collection, many of which will be shown for the first time. A voyage across various permutations of abstraction that span the artist’s entire career, the selection offers an intimate glimpse into Whitten’s core belief in art, his deep philosophical concerns, and the people that inspired him.
