Since its introduction in 1932, the Whitney Biennial has charted new developments in contemporary art. Amid ongoing upheavals in cultural, social, and political spheres, this catalogue offers an engaging new take on the storied institution of the Biennial while continuing to serve, as all previous editions have, as an invaluable resource about art in the United States today.
The curators of the 2024 Whitney Biennial, Chrissie Iles and Meg Onli, are both known for genre-defying, boundary-pushing thematic exhibitions A thematically organized image section reflecting the work of artists in the Biennial will be followed by entries about each artist—an approach that will encourage readers to draw connections between the work of different artists. A collaborative essay by Iles and Onli will present their thinking behind the exhibition, while essays by curators and scholars Eva Hayward and Amber Jamilla Musser will surface specific themes.
