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.
