Multiple Edition highlights emerging artists in an evening of demonstration, performance, experimentation, and dialogue. This season, Multiple Edition takes a cue from blog culture and considers the theme of oversharing—what information do we give away; how do we share our thoughts, process, or materials; what would constitute too much for an artist?
Each artist in the series is commissioned to create 200 multiples that are given away to the public—free of charge—during their program.

A hybrid of performance, installation, and photography, Corin Hewitt’s practice explores the nature of still life through an investigation and manipulation of materials. Beginning this month, he will take up occupancy in the Whitney’s Anne & Joel Ehrenkranz Lobby Gallery where he will cook, compost, cultivate plants, and cast objects, making photographs throughout the run of the exhibition. For his Multiple Edition program, he is joined by artist Siebren Versteeg for an interactive demonstration of how he transforms the concrete into the abstract.

Drawing on her interest in global networks, urban development, and geographic information, Lize Mogel creates maps that challenge conventional cartographic thinking. She uses the familiar graphic language of maps to reveal social and political forces that shape our understanding of the world. This evening she brings her “map mash-ups” to the Whitney, engaging visitors in an imaginative geography project.
All Multiple Edition programs are free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish during Whitney After Hours on Fridays from 6-9 pm.
