The Whitney Museum of American Art is presenting the 2017 Whitney Biennial, the 78th in its signature survey of contemporary art in the United States and the first in its new building in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. The formation of self and the individual’s place in a turbulent society are among the key themes reflected in the work of the artists selected for the 2017 Whitney Biennial. Co-curated by Christopher Y. Lew and Mia Locks, the exhibition will showcase 63 participants, ranging from emerging to well-established individuals and collectives working in painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, film and video, photography, activism, performance, music, and video-game design.
March 17–June 11. Whitney Museum, 99 Gansevoort Street, 212-570-3600, whitney.org
