Organized by the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Jimmie Durham: At the Center of the World provides a comprehensive overview of the artist’s expansive practice. It is also an exhibition that has sparked critical debates about identity, representation and appropriation—themes Durham’s work frequently contends with. Questions surrounding Durham’s ancestry have long circulated. This retrospective propelled those questions to a wider audience, prompting many new and critical perspectives. As the exhibition has travelled, first to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and then to the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the discussion has continued to evolve, being shaped by diverse voices and contexts.

“For over 50 years, Jimmie Durham’s work has questioned the construction of knowledge, meaning and history. His work explores what it is to be a citizen of the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—a task full of conflict, uncertainty, contradiction and possibility.” Gregory Burke, Executive Director & CEO
