Open Now, 78th Whitney Biennial Showcases a Diverse Snapshot of American Art

Now in its seventy-eighth iteration, the Whitney Biennial is back, providing a snapshot of American art of all types. This year's Biennial features art from sixty-three individuals and collectives in medium ranging from painting and installation to activism and video-game design.

The 2017 Whitney Biennial, the seventy-eighth installment of the longest-running survey of American art, arrives at a time rife with racial tensions, economic inequities, and polarizing politics. […] Artists raise questions about the very nature of art and identity itself, the difficult task of listening, and providing new ways of looking.

The Whitney Biennial is open now at the Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District, and is on exhibit until June 11th.
