Seminars with Artists is an open forum for conversations with some of the most notable American artists. Multiple Edition is conceived as a platform for discussion and experimentation. Each emerging artist in the series is commissioned to create 200 multiples that will be given away to the public—free of charge—at the event.
Engage with Biennial artists and their work in the galleries through performance and public participation. Open Studio programs are free with Museum admission and are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Select Fridays at 7 pm. Lower Gallery Free with Museum admission, which is pay-what-you-wish on Fridays from 6–9 pm. No tickets, no reservations.
Museum Movements: Inspired by the twelve native New York animal clients in Haeg’s installation Animal Estates 1.0: New York, New York, twelve movement artists wrote Animal Scores for contiguous spaces in the Whitney. Each week throughout the Biennial, one dancer performs a silent “tour” of the Museum, enacting all twelve scores.
Contemporary artists and families come together to share their ideas. Parents and kids participate in an artmaking workshop led by a Biennial artist and explore materials and process together.
Registration is required.
YOUTH INSIGHTS is a paid, after school opportunity for high school students. Connecting with contemporary artists and Whitney staff, participants explore the Museum in the context of contemporary art and culture.
