Overview

Jack Whitten made his sculpture privately in Greece—even after he became one of the most important artists of his generation. For the first time ever, these revelatory works will be on view in Odyssey: Jack Whitten Sculpture, 1963–2016, co-organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This ticketed exhibition features 40 sculptures carved from a diverse spectrum of materials— including wood, marble, copper, bone, and personal mementos—contextualized with African, Minoan, and Cycladic sculptures and other examples of objects that inspired Whitten across the years. A gallery dedicated to Whitten’s Black Monoliths, a series of paintings honoring African American figures, reveals the connection between Whitten’s paintings and his previously unknown sculptures, and marks the first time these works have been exhibited together.
