The Whitney Museum in New York has revealed the list for this year’s Whitney Biennial, which aims to offer a wide-ranging view of American art today, and will run from May 17 to September 22. In a statement, co-curator Rujeko Hockley said this year’s show—the Biennial’s 79th edition—will focus on “the mining of history in order to reimagine the present or future, a profound and sustained consideration of questions of equity along financial, racial, and sexual lines, a concern with climate change, and explorations of the vulnerability of the body.”
Along with visual art, the biennial will also feature performance and film screenings. Film offerings are being organized by a small team, which includes former Leeway staff member and grantee Maori Karmael Holmes (ACG '16, '06, '05, LTA '06).
