I've uploaded below some two dozen images of work from this year's Whitney Biennial, but I'm not suggesting they represent anything but a sampling of the work in the show, especially since I'm not going to include any notes.
Some of these works appear here mostly because I liked the image I was able to capture, even if it may be little more than an abstraction. For instance, by description alone any still from a film or video is an abstraction. A certain number of the choices were favored both for the image and the work, but I have no illusions about representing the artist's creation.
Oh yes, the Whitney has the its own images, but honestly, I haven't looked at the site. For the purposes of this blog, as usual, I just can't resist trying to show original images of original work.
I did say this was just a press preview. As we left the Museum we looked for Aaron Young's work outside on the sidewalk, but it seems there had been some delay in its completion. Another bicyclist had locked his own machine to the designated bike rack located outside the Whitney's front door, holding up Young's installation. Just as we first spotted the still-incomplete piece, the artist returned to continue its assembly. The artist and the curators anticipate that once it is attached to the rack the shiny locked bike will gradually disappear during the term of the Biennial.
