Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World is the first US retrospective of the work of one of the most compelling and multifaceted artists working internationally today. A visual artist, performer, poet, essayist, and activist, Durham has for more than 45 years explored the potential of art to question ingrained cultural belief systems. He has consistently made work that examines the notion of citizenship, the interface between art and activism, and the role of art and artists in society. Durham’s expansive practice spans sculpture, drawing, collage, photography, video, performance, and poetry and is noteworthy for its use of language and distinctive wit.

Featuring nearly 150 works dating from 1970 to the present, At the Center of the World provides a much-anticipated opportunity for audiences to gain a deeper understanding of, or perhaps encounter for the first time, the richly rewarding work of this complex and influential artist. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World is organized by the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. The exhibition was curated by Anne Ellegood, senior curator, with MacKenzie Stevens, curatorial assistant. Following the Hammer Museum and the Walker Art Center, the exhibition will travel to the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and Remai Modern in Saskatoon, Canada.

The presentation at the Walker Art Center is coordinated by curator Vincenzo de Bellis with Misa Jeffereis.


Lead support for the exhibition is provided by the Henry Luce Foundation and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Generous support is provided by Maggie Kayne and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is provided by Lonti Ebers, the Ampersand Foundation / Jack Kirkland, and Adam Lindemann.

The Walker Art Center’s presentation is made possible by generous support from Marilyn and Larry Fields, Karen and Ken Heithoff, Donna and Jim Pohlad, Elizabeth Redleaf, and Annie and Peter Remes.
