A Snapshot of US Contemporary Art at The Whitney

Nicholas Galanin's

At the Whitney, until September 22nd, you can see the culmination of 2 years of curation, via their Biennial.

“Often described as a snapshot of art in the United States, the Biennial brings together work by individuals and collectives in a broad array of mediums.”

Curators Jane Panetta and Rujeko Hockley made hundreds of studio visits, to discover important and timely work.

“Key issues and approaches emerge across the exhibition: the mining of history as a means to reimagine the present or future; a profound consideration of race, gender, and equity; and explorations of the vulnerability of the body. “

The exhibit features 75 across a myriad of mediums.

“In many ways, this year’s biennial is not just a passive reflection of what is happening in contemporary art, but also a statement about the importance of supporting and cultivating emerging artists, especially during challenging times.” —AM New York
