Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight
Dana Miller, the Richard DeMartini Family Curator and Ex-Director of the Collection of the Whitney Museum in New York City, talks about the exhibition by Cuban artist Carmen Herrera.

For Miller, the Whitney curatorial team’s focus on Herrera’s early work served as a means to showcase her innovations and contributions. Along the way, visitors will be able to discern the artist’s transitions and developments as she forged the unique style that has made her work immediately recognizable for over six decades.

Carmen Herrera was on the cover of ArtNexus in 2005 (ArtNexus #58), when the magazine carried a feature article by Juan Ledezma (available here). You can also read the review of the exhibition Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight, by Francine Birbragher-Rozencwaig, PhD, in our most recent issue (ArtNexus #103).
