Michael Asher’s proposal for the Whitney Biennial is to have the exhibition open continuously to the public twenty-four hours a day for one week (Monday, May 24 through Sunday, May 30).

Note: The duration of this work has been shortened from the artist’s original proposal. Due to budgetary and human resources limitations, the Museum is unable to remain open to the public twenty-four hours a day for one week. As a result, this work has been shortened from seven days to three days (Wednesday, May 26 at 12:00 am through Friday, May 28 at 11:59 pm).
