Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016

This exhibition explores the connections between art, technology and cinema. The galleries  display  work from over 30 artists who work in a wide range of media.

“The works on view use color, touch, music, spectacle, light, and darkness to confound expectations, flattening space through animation and abstraction, or heightening the illusion of three dimensions.”-Whitney Museum

The installations are really immersive and thought provoking.

Ask your kids…

-How is this artwork different from other artwork you have seen? How is it similar?

-How do these artists represent people? Do they look like the people you see every day? Why or why not?

-Which artworks are realistic? Which ones are unrealistic? How can you tell?

-What is your experience with technology? Can we use technology to create art?


This is just one exhibition of many fabulous galleries at the Whitney, so go and spend the day!
