WHIT UNVEILS NEW MONSTER BUILDINGMay 10, 2011
The Whitney Museum has slated the groundbreaking ceremony for its monster new Meatpacking District headquarters for May 24, 2011. But that's just shovels in the ground. To get the full idea of what's in store, the museum is putting all the details of Italian architect Renzo Piano's museum design on view at the Marcel Breuer building on Madison Avenue. Organized by Whitney architecture curator Carter Foster, "Designing the Whitney of the Future," opening May 26, 2011, presents renderings and models for the satellite building, which is slated to open in 2015, along with an installation of Lawrence Weiner’s 1989 language piece Here, There & Everywhere.
