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
