Verbal and Touch Tour @ Whitney Museum

November 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Verbal Description and Touch Tour
Topic: JIMMIE DURHAM: AT THE CENTER OF THE WORLD
Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World is the first North American retrospective of Durham’s work, and traces more than forty-five years of his expansive
practice. The exhibition includes sculptures, drawings, collages, photography, and video works that demonstrate Durham’s commitment to exploring the complexities
of historical narratives and notions of authenticity. Calling himself an “interventionist,” Durham is oftentimes critical in his analysis of society but
with a distinctive wit that is simultaneously generous and humorous.
Space is limited and reservations are required. Please call
646-666-5574 or email accessfeedback@whitney.org to RSVP.

Whitney verbal description tours provide an opportunity for visitors who are blind or have low vision to experience the richness and diversity of twentieth- and twenty- first-century American art. Explore the Whitney’s collection or special exhibitions with a highly skilled museum educator trained to provide vivid, detailed verbal description of the works on display, while experiencing a selection
of objects through touch. Manual wheelchairs, stools, and assistive listening devices are available for all touch programs.

These free, 90-minute tours take place when the galleries are closed to the general public. Tours are held monthly as well as by request with three weeks advance notice.
