Imagine stepping into a world where color and structure intertwine, leading you through a labyrinth of emotion and history. This is the experience awaiting visitors at the Buffalo AKG Art Museum, where the major career-spanning survey ‘How High the Moon’ unveils the profound layers of Stanley Whitney’s artistry. At 77, Whitney, a luminary in the realm of abstract painting, offers a retrospective that transcends the conventional narrative of artistic evolution.

A Retrospective Unveiled

Under the meticulous curation of Chief Curator Cathleen Chaffee, ‘How High the Moon’ presents an arresting array of Whitney’s signature grid paintings. Each piece serves as a testament to his enduring quest not for progress or innovation, but for a deeper understanding of our existential locale. Whitney’s canvases are a vibrant dialogue between color blocks and the spaces between, a visual harmony that speaks to the core of our being. The exhibition’s namesake, inspired by the 1940 jazz standard, metaphorically echoes Whitney’s artistic journey—a pursuit tinged with aspiration and the poignant allure of the unattainable.

Art is still seen, for the most part, as something that relies on being viewed in person and as a cultural experience largely reserved for a ‘certain type’ of person. The art world can feel exclusionary on many grounds: geography (most larger galleries are in big cities like London, New York, or Berlin), accessibility (little provision been made has historically for things like disabilities and neurodivergence), diversity (of staff, artists, themes), and more.

In the early days of lockdown, many galleries attempted new ways of showing art, often through online 3D walkthrough experiences, with varying success. In the years since, we’ve seen further significant shifts in how we interact with culture: the post-pandemic world is one of ‘phygital’ spaces, augmented realities, and new experiments in the gallery-from-home experience from NFTs to immersive takes on Van Gogh.
