Late last year, we visited Rachel Feinstein in her New York studio and delved deep into the themes of her work and unique process.

Check out our latest collaboration with the Jewish Museum here.

"The problem with our society now is that it's only interested in the maiden." — Rachel Feinstein

Only a few weeks left to see "Rachel Feinstein: Maiden, Mother, Crone," closing on March 22. The first museum survey of the New York-based artist features three decades of sculpture, installation, painting, and video, exploring the three consequential stages in a woman’s life.

Whitney Museum of American Art

"An artwork can stand for a certain kind of hope, or a certain kind of tenacity. It can radiate: look what happens if someone cares so deeply about something and they don't stop." - Liza Lou

We're thrilled to share another collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art.

"I really wanted to make it clear that this was a work about ignored women—that I was making a monument to women."—Liza Lou, on her mammoth installation Kitchen.

Made over the course of five years, Kitchen (1991–1996) presents a full-scale, exactingly detailed room encrusted in a rainbow of glistening glass beads. Through boxes of breakfast cereal, the poetry of Emily Dickinson, and everyday objects of kitchen drudgery, Lou created a glittery pop vision of suburban happiness to explore the complex role women have played in modern American life.

Kitchen is on view in the exhibition Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950–2019. Read more and buy tickets: https://bit.ly/2pDMZmB

"There's a way to access memory and desire and aspiration and location through objects... I think it can be really transformative and really affirming for some people. And it allows them to build a world in which they see themselves mirrored. And that's what I hope to do with the photographs." - Farah al Qasimi

In our newest film with artist Farah Al Qasimi, she discusses how adornment and tradition play a role in creating comfort in our personal spaces.

In the latest installment of our #WhitneyBiennial series we traveled to Loiza, Puerto Rico to speak with artist Daniel Lind Ramos about his piece, “Maria-Maria” and the ways he gathers, sews, ties and assembles found objects as a means of remembering Puerto Rico’s past and present.

"I take personal experiences and use them to create visual symbols. My studio is the whole community." In episode three of our Whitney Biennial video series, we travel to Loíza, Puerto Rico, to visit Daniel Lind-Ramos in his studio. Lind-Ramos uses found materials from all over his community to create assemblages that engage with Puerto Rico's history and present-day life.

His sculpture “Maria-Maria” refers to both the Virgin Mary and the 2017 Hurricane Maria. “1797: Vencedor” and "Sentinels" recall the British invasion of San Juan, which was thwarted in part thanks to the Black militia of Loíza and Cangrejos. Visit bit.ly/2KoaetO to view the full episode.

GALLERIES: All Eyes Are on Carol Rama | ⭐️ Watch the 📺 on DailyPlinth.com ⭐️ Link in Bio ⭐️ | In the last several years, the work of artist Carol Rama has been receiving something of a well–deserved reassessment, not dissimilar to the recent exploding of interest in Hilma af Klint. As af Klint’s revitalization was sparked by a series of exhibitions culminating now at the Guggenheim in New York, Rama was also something of an outsider artist who was mostly pigeonholed and overlooked as such until recently, including a groundbreaking retrospective at the New Museum in 2017. Now, Rama is featured in a critically-acclaimed exhibition at Lévy Gorvy in New York, 'Eye of Eyes,' through April 10, 2019. This video gives us a look around the exhibition, and we hear curator Flavia Frigeri and Dominique Lévy speak about what made Rama’s work so radical in her time, and still so relevant today.
