With a history of exhibiting the most promising and influential artists and provoking intense debate, the Whitney Biennial—the Museum’s signature exhibition—is the most important survey of the state of contemporary art in the United States. ￼The Biennial, an invitational show of work produced in the ￼preceding two years, was introduced by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932, and it is the only continuous ￼series of exhibitions in the country to survey recent developments in American art. This will be the first￼ presentation of the Biennial in the Whitney’s new building.
The 2017 Whitney Biennial will be co-curated by Christopher Y. Lew and Mia Locks.
