The Whitney Museum for American Art: "Six in Four"
10:30 Commissioned by the Whitney Museum as part of the grand opening of their new location. Four elevators designed by Richard Artschwager (1923–2013) bring visitors into contact with art as soon as they enter the new Whitney. Each is an immersive installation featuring one or more of the six subjects that occupied Artschwager’s imagination for decades: door, window, table, basket, mirror, and rug. Titled Six in Four, the elevators are the artist’s last major work, and the only permanent commission in the new building. In this video Adam Weinberg, Donna De Salvo, and others involved in realizing the project discuss the work and how it was made. El Tigre Productions.
