Art History from Home: Art and Social Change
Art always exists in relation to its particular social moment. Whether representing the current reality or leveraging its power to challenge cultural narratives, it can inspire emotional responses and critical thinking in a way distinct from traditional political methods. Through work in the Whitney’s collection, we will explore the different roles art has played in twentieth century United States, addressing issues from immigration, to economic justice, to sexism, and racism.

Xin Wang is a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney Museum and a Ph.D. candidate in modern and contemporary art at The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. She is the curator of numerous exhibitions in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, her latest writings have appeared in Art in America, Art Agenda, and Wallpaper (Chinese edition). She is currently planning an exhibition that explores Asian Futurisms for The Museum of Chinese in America in New York City.
