Jack Whitten talks to Frieze about his life and work in his studio in Queens, New York. His solo exhibition ‘More Dimensions Than You Know: Jack Whitten, 1979 – 1989’ curated by Richard Shiff, is on view at Hauser & Wirth London through 18 November 2017. –
Celebrated for his innovative transfiguration of paint in works equally alert to materiality, politics and metaphysics, Whitten’s diverse practice bridges gestural abstraction and process art. He experiments ceaselessly to arrive at a nuanced language of painting that hovers between mechanical automation and spiritual expression.

At Hauser & Wirth London, Whitten’s presentation has a historical focus, bringing together a large number of his paintings from 1979 to 1989. These years marked a period of intense experimentation for the artist and reflect his intellectual engagement with contemporary changes in science and technology. Whitten’s work is a focus of ‘Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power’, on view at Tate Modern (@Tate) through 22 October 2017.
