Age & Beauty Part 1: Mid-Career Artist/Suicide Note or &:-/ is a duet Miguel Gutierrez performs with young dancer Mickey Mahar. The piece deals with mid-career anxiety, futurity and tropes about the aging gay choreographer, and is the first of a three part series of queer pieces addressing longevity, sustainability, aesthetic signature and burnout.

Access Programs

Join educator Alexandria Wailes for a free tour in American Sign Language of the 2014 Biennial, without voice interpretation. The tour begins at 7 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 6–7 pm.

The Biennial, an invitational show of work produced in the preceding two years, was introduced by founder Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932. The 2014 Whitney Biennial takes a bold new form as three curators from outside the Museum—Stuart Comer (Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art at MoMA), Anthony Elms (Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia), and Michelle Grabner (artist and Professor in the Painting and Drawing Department at the School of the Art Institute, Chicago)—each oversee one floor, representing a range of geographic vantages and curatorial methodologies. This Biennial will be the last to take place in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s building at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street before the Museum moves downtown to its new building in the spring of 2015.

Admission to tour and reception is free with RSVP. ASL students are welcome to attend with student admission to the Museum. Museum staff/interpreters will not be able to sign student assignments.
