With a history of exhibiting the most promising and influential artists and provoking intense debate, the Whitney Biennial—the Museum’s signature exhibition—is the most important survey of the state of #contemporaryart in the United States. The Biennial, an invitational show of work produced in the preceding two years, was introduced by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932, and it is the only continuous series of exhibitions in the country to survey recent developments in American art. This will be the first presentation of the Biennial in the Whitney’s new downtown building and it will be curated by the Whitney's Nancy and Fred Poses Associate Curator Christopher Y. Lew and independent curator Mia Locks. The sixth floor of the Biennial closes on July 16, 2017.
Biennial Advisors: Scott Rothkopf, Negar Azimi, Gean Moreno, Aily Nash, and Wendy Yao.
The 2017 Whitney Biennial film program is organized by Christopher Y. Lew, Mia Locks, and Aily Nash.
The 2017 Whitney Biennial Press Preview will take place on Monday, March 13.
