The Museum is thrilled to present a special evening program with Robert Longo, an American artist of international renown whose works are currently on view in Vantage Points and recently in Reverberations. With a 40+ year career as an artist, filmmaker, photographer, and musician, Longo is best known for his detailed photorealistic drawings of jumping figures, sharks, tigers, and guns. For this program, Longo discusses his body of work—including five photographs from his Men in the Cities series on view in Vantage Points—then joins Museum staff for a conversation about the narrative power of art and audience Q&A.
Presented in conjunction with Vantage Points: Contemporary Photography from the Whitney Museum of American Art and Intersections in American Art. Generous support for exhibition programming provided by Art Bridges.
