On View: Celebrate the Biennial at the Whitney

Every two years, the Whitney Museum of American Art throws a creative celebration called the Biennial — and you are invited. The 2014 Whitney Biennial is the last of its kind in the museum’s current Madison Avenue location (it will be relocating to a downtown location between the High Line and the Hudson River in 2015). So they have pulled out all the stops.

In addition to showcasing the latest in cutting edge contemporary art, the Biennial exhibition ups the ante on innovation. It demands the unconventional and delivers. In a departure from previous shows, this year’s Biennial is organized by three curators from outside the museum, Stuart Comer, Anthony Elms and Michelle Grabner. Each has been given their own exhibition floor to share the muse and their distinctive curatorial styles

More than 100 artists are featured across a wide variety of disciplines including painting sculpture, film, photography, dance and music. Donna De Salvo, Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Programs at the Whitney, said “The participants offer one of the broadest and most diverse takes on art in the United States that the Whitney has offered in many years.”

2014 Whitney Biennial is on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art through May 25, 2014.
