In his first show with the powerhouse Hauser & Wirth, veteran abstractionist Jack Whitten shows work from three ongoing series made in the last few years: lenticular works on Evolon, a work from his Black Monolith series honoring luminaries of African-American experience, and his tessellated works, including The Third Portal, 2016, pictured here. Whitten is one of several artist to be discussed at The Review Panel at Brooklyn Public Library on February 7 when moderator David Cohen will be joined by Jessica Bell Brown, Jennifer Samet and John Yau.
