"America is Hard to See: 1965 to the present" at the New Whitney Museum of American Art

I was fortunate to see this exhibition on the last week of its showing. Due to problems with my phone, I was only able to bring you highlights from the art shown on the 5th floor. The new Whitney building is amazing and the exhibition space serves the work well. The exhibit is basically the Whitney's permanent collection. The amazing aspect of the show, particularly the part of the show which dealt with art from 1965 to the present, was the strong showing of artist from Los Angeles. Mark Bradford, Catherine Opie, Mike Kelly, Raymond Pettibon, and others reflect a shift in focus that even the docent agreed with the change. If you did not have a chance to see this in person, here are some highlights.
