Five Whitney Artists, New York

National Portrait Gallery
In 2002, acclaimed photographer Irving Penn brought together five of the nation's most celebrated living artists, pictured here from left to right: Ellsworth Kelly (born 1923), Chuck Close (born 1940), Jasper Johns (born 1930), Robert Rauschenberg (born 1925), and Kenneth Noland (born 1924). Coming of age during a period when abstract expressionism was most favored, each moved art-making in a new direction and contributed to the growing international respect for American art. They helped to shape such influential movements as pop, minimalism, and color-field painting, and in so doing not only reinvigorated the field of contemporary art, but also contributed to New York City's rise as one of the world's great art capitals.

Turquoise Mountain: Artists Transforming Afghanistan

Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery
"Turquoise Mountain: Artists Transforming Afghanistan" March 5, 2016–January 29, 2017, International Gallery asia.si.edu/turquoisemountain From its critical position on the ancient Silk Road that stretches from Europe to China, Afghanistan absorbed traditions from India, Persia, and Central Asia and blended them into a distinct artistic culture. Decades of civil unrest that began in the 1970s nearly destroyed this vital heritage. Many of Afghanistan’s artisans were forced to leave their country or give up their craft. The old city of Kabul, once a bustling center of craft and commerce, fell into ruin. The British non-governmental organization Turquoise Mountain, founded in 2006 at the request of HRH The Prince of Wales and the President of Afghanistan, has transformed the Murad Khani district of Old Kabul from slum conditions into a vibrant cultural and economic center. The organization has renovated historic buildings, opened a primary school and a medical clinic, and rebuilt necessary infrastructure. It has founded Afghanistan’s premier institution for vocational training in the arts. Dedicated to teaching a new generation of Afghan artisans in woodwork, calligraphy, ceramics, jewelry design, and other crafts, Turquoise Mountain is reviving the nation’s proud cultural legacy. To share this transformative story of people, places, and heritage in Afghanistan, the Freer and Sackler Galleries will recreate a visit to Old Kabul, transforming galleries into an Afghan caravanserai, complete with artisan stalls and architectural elements, immersive video and large-scale photographs. Visiting artisans from Murad Khani will demonstrate their craft and share their experiences, allowing visitors to experience Afghanistan’s rich culture and national pride. Turquoise Mountain: Artists Transforming Afghanistan is organized by the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and the Turquoise Mountain Institute for Afghan Art and Architecture with generous support from the United States Agency for International Development.
