Congratulations to Xinyi Cheng ('14) on the impressive review in the New York Times!

Also here are two works by Xinyi Cheng, a Chinese-born, Netherlands-based artist who is the youngest in the show. (She turns 30 next year.) Ms. Cheng contributes the exceptional “Harnessing the Wind,” which shows a cropped, largely pink close-up of a naked man who seems to be tumbling through space, very much at the mercy of the wind.

We can't wait to host Evelyn Hankins tomorrow!

Evelyn C. Hankins has been a curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden since 2007. While at the Hirshhorn, she has also organized an array of projects, including Mark Bradford: Pickett’s Charge (2017); Robert Irwin: All the Rules Will Change (2016); Susan Philipsz: Part File Score (2016); At the Hub of Things: New Views of the Collection (2014) (co-curated); Jennie C. Jones: Higher Resonance (2013); Over, Under Next: Experiments in Mixed Media, 1913-Present (2013); ColorForms (2010); Walead Beshty: Legibility on Color Backgrounds (2009); and The Panza Collection (2008). Currently, she is working on shows with Charline von Heyl (2018) and Pat Steir (2019). In addition to her exhibition responsibilities, Evelyn provides curatorial oversight for the Hirshhorn’s paintings and works on paper collections. Previously, she held curatorial positions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and the Robert Hull Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont, Burlington. She earned her M.A. and Ph.D. in art history from Stanford University.

"Aptly titled 'Introductions', my hope is that this show occurs as an introduction on any number of levels: introductions from artist to artist, an introduction of viewer to artist, & perhaps an introduction to materials and modes of expression not typically encountered. I believe that each of these artworks deserves to be seen and to be considered deeply. I entreat each visitor to the show to "introduce" your own sense of curiosity and generous interest to their creative undertakings, to explore their larger oeuvres through the doorways offered here, and to revel in the delights and inspirations you may find along the way." Enrico Gomez, Curator
