My Turn: Nina Berman

Nina Berman’s interest in the human stories behind war and global conflicts is the inspiration and motivation behind her searing photographs of contemporary warfare. By creating portraits of individuals transformed by war, she seeks to make the conflict “more intimately felt by a civilian audience.” Join her as she brings the war home in a unique format for a night of dialogue and interaction.

My Turn invites artists to create programs for the Whitney’s public that are an extension of and informed by their own artistic processes and methods. Taking their contributions to 2010 as a point of departure, six Biennial artists explore key aspects of their practice to create distinctive evenings of performance, discussion, demonstration, and engagement.
