Betty Woodman in "Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950-2019" at Whitney Museum of American Art
November 22, 2019 through January 2021
Whitney Museum of American Art
Drawn from works in the museum’s collection, this survey explores ways that artists have drawn on the materials and methods of craft. The exhibition takes a historical perspective, spanning 70 years of creative output by artists, including a range of works by Betty Woodman from her ground-breaking Joined Vases (1972), an early example of her push beyond production pottery while still embracing it as subject matter, to her ambitious and animated Still Life Vase #11 (1990).
