In the Studio: Jack Whitten

10 Mar 2018
Frieze Magazine, A Zapote Production, 2017

Jack Whitten talks to Frieze about his life and work in his studio in Queens, New York, on the occasion of his exhibition ‘More Dimensions Than You Know: Jack Whitten, 1979 – 1989’ at Hauser & Wirth London, 27 September – 18 November 2017. Celebrated for his innovative processes of applying and transfiguring paint in works alert to politics, identity, and societal coordinates, Whitten holds a unique place in the narrative of postwar American art. Over the course of his five decade career, Whitten constructed a bridge between gestural abstraction and process art, experimenting ceaselessly to arrive at a nuanced language of painting that hovers between mechanical automation and deeply personal expression.
