whitney 25Through June 11th you can go to the Whitney and http://whitney.org/Exhibitions/2017Biennial

The Whitney Biennial is the longest running survey of contemporary art in the United States, with a history of exhibiting the most promising and influential artists and provoking lively debate. The 2017 Biennial is the Museum’s seventy-eighth in a continuous series of Annual and Biennial exhibitions initiated by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932. It is the first to be held in the Whitney’s downtown home at 99 Gansevoort Street, and the largest ever in terms of gallery space.

I went to see it with my friend Stephanie and it was so cool from new art in the stairwell to art made from bologna to a faux stain glass window to cherry blossom and dogwoods blooming indoors

I loved Aliza Nisenbaum (b. 1977), La Talaverita, Sunday Morning NY Times, 2016. Oil on linen, 68 × 88 in. (172.7 × 223.5 cm). Collection of the artist; courtesy T293 Gallery, Rome and Mary Mary, Glasgow

It is so neat online you can hear some audio from each of the artist – I loved this http://whitney.org/WatchAndListen/AudioGuides?play_id=1740

The New Yorker says :

The show’s works, by artists with roots from Milwaukee to San Juan to Tehran, convey empathy, action, rage, and reflection
