Rayyane Tabet Presents His Work on Citizenship and Nationality
99 Gansevoort Street | (212) 570-3600
Friday, May 20th, 2022
5:00PM - 6:00PM

As part of his contribution to the Whitney Biennial 2022, artist Rayyane Tabet has installed the questions for the U.S. naturalization exam in unexpected places throughout the Museum. Taken out of context and presented without their official answers, these phrases invite you to think critically about concepts like citizenship and nationality. For these in-gallery tours inspired by the work, visitors are invited to join a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow to consider fundamental questions of United States history, government, and civic participation in dialogue with the Whitney’s institutional history through its collection and architecture.
