About the Exhibit

The Whitney's vast collection of American art is re-curated in this exhibition to explore the influence of *craft* on different artistic mediums. Craft, such as weaving and bead-work, is often considered a distinct field from painting and sculpture. These works, however, show the influence of folk and decorative arts on contemporary painting. Works by more than sixty contemporary artists, including Robert Rauschenberg and Kahil Robert Irving make up the large, long-running exhibition.
