Odyssey: Jack Whitten Sculpture, 1963–2016 is the first exhibition of the artist’s sculpture at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The exhibition will include forty sculptures—including his “Black Monolith” series—made of a variety of materials, including wood, marble, copper, bone, and personal mementos. The exhibition also includes sculptures and objects that inspired Whitten over the years, including figures from Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Guinea, Mali, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. (The artist chose to make the vast majority of his sculpture privately in Greece.) Odyssey is co-organized with The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
