Biennial exhibition of the Whitney Museum of American Art

0

After several years of pandemic-related delays, the Whitney Museum of American Art is preparing to host its long-awaited 80th biennial next month.

The event was first held in 1932 to highlight the many artistic developments in the art scene in the United States. Since then, it has become one of the country’s premier exhibitions and has featured over 3,600 influential artists across a number of creative disciplines.

According to a statement from Whitney curators David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards, the event “is an ongoing experiment, the result of a shared commitment to artists and the work they do.” This year’s edition, titled “Quiet as It’s Kept,” had a lot to consider as planning began ahead of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the many racial justice protests. triggered by the murder of George Floyd.

“Although many of these underlying conditions are not new, their overlap, intensity and pervasiveness have created a context in which the past, present and future have become embedded. We have curated the exhibition to reflect these precarious and improvised times. The Biennale mainly serves as a forum for artists, and the works that will be presented reflect their enigmas, the things that perplex them, the important questions they ask themselves,” Breslin added.
