Whitney Biennial 2102 -- Take a Sneak Peek

The 76th Annual Whitney Biennial returns this Thursday, March 1st with sculpture, painting, installations, photography, dance, theater and music filling the museum's galleries for nearly three months.  Moreover, for the first time, the entire fourth floor will be reserved for rotating performances and events.   

Curated by Elisabeth Sussman and Jay Sanders, the Biennial features works that looks at "the breakdown of boundaries between art forms."  Pieces include paintings and archival materials by Forrest Bess (a painter/fisherman who theorized about the unification of the two genders, which led him to perform surgery on his own genitals that made him a semi-hermaphrodite); a multimedia installation by Werner Herzog that combines etchings from Dutch landscape painter/printmaker Hercules Segers and music by Ernst Reijeseger; and dance pieces by British choreographer/dancer Michael Clark.

Take a peek at some of the art on display below:
