Whitney Biennial 2006:
Day for Night
Mar 2–May 28, 2006


The Whitney's signature panoramic survey of the latest in American art is the seventy-third in the series of Annuals and Biennials inaugurated by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932. The 2006 Biennial examines contemporary artmaking in America at a moment of profound global change. The exhibition, titled Day for Night after François Truffaut's 1973 film, conjures a mood of dark intensity, shifting between beauty and degradation, doubt and conformity, the seductive and the strange.
