Setting a Table at the Whitney with Art, by Ted Loos, The New York Times

“…[T]he Whitney Museum of American Art is rebooting its restaurant spaces with commissioned artworks by two top contemporary makers, Rashid Johnson and Dyani White Hawk, and their works are also entering the museum’s collection.”

White Hawk’s work, a wall of colorful ceramic tiles called “Nourish,” will be installed in a space that was formerly Studio Bar. But the cafe won’t open until sometime in 2024. (Both cafes are designed by the New York architectural firm Modellus Novus.) …She said in an interview that “Nourish” represented a series of firsts: It’s her largest work to date (more than 30 feet wide), her first work in ceramic tile and her first commission for a permanent installation in a museum. She collaborated with Mercury Mosaics, a Minneapolis ceramics specialist.”
