Where We Are Publication
Paperback. Published by Whitney Museum of American Art. 50 pages.
Focusing on works made from 1900 to 1960, Where We Are traces how artists have approached the relationships, institutions, and activities that shape our lives. Drawn entirely from the Whitney's holdings, the exhibition is organized around five themes: family and community, work, home, the spiritual, and the nation. During the six decades covered here, the United States participated in two world wars, experiences economic collapse, and faced social discord. American artists responded in complex and diverse ways, and a central aim of the of the exhibition is to honor each artist's efforts to create her or his own vision of American life. The artists and their works suggest that our sense of self is composed of our responsibilities, places, and beliefs.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition, which opened on April 28, 2017, this volume includes more than 50 full-color reproductions of works as well as the interpretive text featured in the galleries.
