Inside the Whitney Biennial

This 5-week course offers an in-depth exploration of the Whitney Biennial 2014. By focusing on one floor of the Biennial each week, detailed attention will be given to the curatorial visions, artists, and themes that emerge within the Biennial. Select Biennial artists will also visit the course to discuss their work. 

Instructor: Jennie Goldstein, a Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow at the Whitney Museum since 2011, is currently a Ph.D. candidate in art history at Stony Brook University where she studies late modern and contemporary art. Her area of focus is on intersections of visual art and dance, and her in-progress dissertation, “Moving Bodies, Moving Things: Convergences of Art and Dance, 1960–1975,” reveals historical underpinnings for the recent surge in dance in museums. Prior to pursuing her doctorate she worked as a curatorial assistant and senior curatorial assistant at the Whitney, where she contributed to many exhibitions and publications.
