A Preview Of The 2017 Whitney Biennial @ The Whitney Museum Of American Art In New York

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. Throughout the exhibition, artists challenge us to consider how these realities affect our senses of self and community. The Biennial features sixty-three individuals and collectives whose work takes a wide variety of forms, from painting and installation to activism and video-game design. The 2017 Whitney Biennial will be on view from March 17 to June 11, 2017 at The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. photographs by Adam Lehrer
