Whitney Biennial 2019
May 17–Sep 22, 2019

The Whitney Biennial is an unmissable event for anyone interested in finding out what’s happening in art today. Over the past year, the curators have been visiting artists and alternative spaces throughout the United States, in search of the most important, exciting, and relevant work. Taking the pulse of American culture and creativity, the Whitney Biennial is the Museum’s look at the state of contemporary art in the United States. With a venerable history of exhibiting the most stimulating artists—and often provoking debate—the Biennial, introduced by the Museum’s founder Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932, is the longest-running continuous exhibition in the country to chart the latest developments in American art.
