Whitney Biennial 2012

The 2012 Whitney Biennial is the seventy-sixth in the ongoing series of Biennials and Annuals presented by the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. This year’s Biennial, curated by Elisabeth Sussman and Jay Sanders, presents painting, sculpture, installations, photography, dance, theater, music, and film from artists at all points of their careers, and provides an overview of the current state of contemporary art in America.

Protests outside, performances inside: For the first time, the entire fourth floor becomes a 6,000-square foot performance space for music, dance, theater, and other events. The Whitney Biennial also offers a wide range of public programs. The 2012 Whitney Biennial runs from March 1 through May 27. Some programs continue through June 10, 2012.
