Whitney Biennial 2019 shows the diversity of American art today

The Whitney Biennial 2019 is at the Whitney Museum in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, Wednesday-Monday, May 17 – September 22, 2019. From $18

The Whitney Biennial is the leading survey of what’s happening in American art today. The Whitney’s mindset has really shifted to be inclusive of the diversity that is art in America today.

Whitney Biennial 2019

The exhibition includes seventy-five artists. It is curated by Jane Panetta and Rujeko Hockley.

Their curation is very awoke. It represents the time we are living in with social changes in race, sexuality and of course around climate.

Panetta and Hockley sought out emerging artists who look back at history to find a sense of community and a way forward into the world we live in today.

They expected to find creative dissonance to match our dysfunctional political moment, but instead found “a deliberate sense of forward-looking optimism.”

The exhibition includes works based in dance and a broad range of performance art. The performance program is curated by Greta Hartenstein.

A catalog is available.
