Collecting Biennials in New York

January 20, 2010 by Kay

See a huge collection of art at Collecting Biennials, a recently opened exhibition at Whitney Mueum of American Art on Madison Avenue which runs until November 2010. The exhibition includes artists such as Ashley Bickerton, Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns,  Richard Prince, Mark Rothko, Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, Cy Twombly and Andy Warhol.

For more information, visit the Whitney Museum of American Art website.

Press Release

As a prelude, counterpoint, and coda to the Biennial, the Museum’s fifth floor is devoted to artists in the Whitney’s collection whose works were shown in Biennials over the past eight decades. Collecting Biennials, opening on January 16, is installed as a kind of historical survey within the Biennial, underscoring the importance of previous Biennial exhibitions in the Museum’s history and the formation of its collection. Work by one of the artists in 2010, George Condo, is included in the mix. Collecting Biennials begins nearly six weeks before the rest of the Biennial and remains on view until November 2010.
