Verbal Description and Touch Tour

The 2017 Whitney Biennial, the seventy-eighth installment of the longest-running survey of American art, arrives at a time rife with racial tensions, economic inequities, and polarizing politics. Throughout the exhibition, artists challenge us to consider how these realities affect our senses of self and community. The Biennial features sixty-three individuals and collectives whose work takes a wide variety of forms, from painting and installation to activism and video-game design. 

This tour will look at works that question the construction of race, representation, and power structures. Politically charged and often controversial, the works visited are intended to spark dialogue and debate.
