My Biennial Favorites

Whitney Biennial

The Whitney Biennial has been a regular part of the exhibition schedule at the Whitney Museum of American Art since 1932. It features works from the previous two years. The Biennial is considered a barometer of the current trends in art in America.

The 2019 Biennial opened today and will remain on display until Sept. 22. This year’s exhibit shows a focus on diversity, social commentary and realism. Here are some of my favorite pieces. This is a small sampling of the 75 artists included in the Biennial.

    What an interesting collection. There is a lot going on and to think about in the samples here, so I imagine it would take some time to go through the entire exhibition. I think my personal favourite of the samples you’ve shown is The Woman is King.
