Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World

Exhibition Overview

Jimmie Durham, Head, 2006

Jimmie Durham has been an internationally renowned artist and writer since the 1960s and was a prominent political organiser for the American Indian Movement during the 1970s. This retrospective at the Whitney is a “long overdue” reflection on Durham’s influence on later artists, say Whitney curators Elisabeth Sussman and Laura Phipps in a joint email. “The Whitney is proud to present the show in New York, where Durham worked for many years and was an important voice in the downtown art community of the 1980s,” they said. “We are thrilled that this exhibition will give viewers the chance to assess Durham’s full career and will introduce a new audience to the wide range of his work.”
