Few contemporary exhibitions have had the influence or attracted more ire from art critics throughout the years as the Whitney Biennial. In the past, it has thrown together emerging artists with unknowns, multimedia presentations alongside murals or paintings, and shuffled so many political, cultural, visual and other references into the mix, that to say the show will be provocative is an understatement.
Unlike previous years, though, the museum has invited three outside curators — Stuart Comer, from The Museum of Modern Art, Anthony Elms, from the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia and Michelle Grabner, from the School of the Art Institute, Chicago — to each oversee and curate one floor of the 2014 Biennial.
The show runs through May 25, 2014. For more, visit the museum’s website.
