Inside the Whitney Biennial 2022: Session 1
Since the first edition in 1932, the Whitney Biennial has presented emerging and established artists who explore the fundamental issues of their time. This three-week course gives participants an in-depth view of the works in the 2022 exhibition and probes urgent questions it raises about the complexity of “American” identity, the tension between the personal and political, as well as the precarious and improvised nature of our current moment. We consider artists working in a range of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, film and video, and performance.
