Wharton Tiers at Metropolitan Museum of Art
13 November 2009
Wharton, who played drums for Glenn Branca’s seminal No Wave band, Theoretical Girls, was among the many artists featured in The Pictures Generation, 1974–1984 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art from April 21–August 2, 2009.
Educated in the self-reflexive and critical principles of Minimal and Conceptual art, this tightly knit group of artists brought those lessons to bear on a return to recognizable imagery, exploring how images shape our perceptions of ourselves and the world. Featured were 160 works in all media by thirty artists.
