Mary Heilmann: Sunset

May 1–September 27, 2015 │ New York

Commissioned for the Whitney Museum’s new downtown home, Mary Heilmann's site-specific installation inaugurates the new building's largest outdoor gallery.

This complex and exuberant installation is comprised of three main components: a pair of shocking pink geometric forms climbing the Museum’s north facade, a group of forty sculptural chairs to be used by visitors and a video Heilmann shot around the Museum’s new neighborhood in 1982.

The installation provides visitors with a setting to relax and converse while taking in the majestic views of the Hudson River to the west and the Manhattan skyline. Looking down from the Museum’s higher terraces, the installation resembles a playful abstract composition on the paved floor below.
