Whitney Biennial 2017: Art and Identity (Part 2)

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. In the second film in a three-part series, artists raise questions about the nature of art and identity, emphasize the need for care and attention, and propose new ways to see the world.
