The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Philadelphia Museum of Art will present joint exhibitions dedicated to Jasper Johns in 2020. The sweeping, two-part retrospective will cover the influential artist’s lengthy career. The exhibition will be the first Johns retrospective since 1996, when the Museum of Modern Art in New York hosted a show focused on the artist’s oeuvre. Johns, who is eighty-six years old, continues to create innovative works in his Sharon, Connecticut, studio.
