Fritz Haeg was trained as an architect, but his current practice spans disciplines including performance, ecology, and installation. The Biennial 2008 artist led families on a private guided tour of Animal Estates, his outdoor installation in the Sculpture Court, which recreated habitats of animals native to New York City that have been displaced by the Whitney’s building. Composer Matthew Van Brink then led families in several interactive sing along songs inspired by Haeg’s installation and guided kids and parents through the process of creating their own animal-inspired tune.
