The WHITNEY BIENNIAL 2012
Every two years the fanfare sounds and denizens of the New York art world are irresistibly attracted to this august institution. This year is no different, and although it's been drawing comparisons with the New Museum's Young Artists' survey, which is running concurrently, there are changes that signal new categories of experience being presented at this Whitney Biennial. The Forth floor is given over almost entirely to dance/performance, an indication of the new relevance of this practice. And, after years of institutional repression , there is once again, a very short roster of participating painters here, but what else is new?
