Ethics of Looking

Location: Floor Three, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center, Hearst Artspace

The artists and artworks in the 2017 Biennial raise a range of pressing contemporary issues, including debt, censorship, immigration, racism and violence. What is art’s role in in relation to social issues like this? What is the responsibility of artists, museums, and viewers? After you see the show, join Whitney Museum Teaching Fellows for an open discussion to continue the dialogue about the complex politics and ethics of representation in relation to the works in the 2017 Biennial.
