The 2017 Whitney Biennial traces an immeasurable circumference around our contemporary moment, looking for the “edge of an irregularly shaped idea,” according to co-curator Mia Locks—who, together with Whitney Associate Curator Christopher Y. Lew, assertively orchestrated a perpetually shifting fugue of sixty-three artists and collectives for its seventy-eighth edition.

JUNE 2018 | Dance
Each June, New York City observes Pride Month by celebrating and commemorating the LGBTQ community with vibrant events and exhibitions of all kinds. This year, among innumerable festivities, New York Live Arts facilitates “The House Party,” part of a multi-faceted celebration and remembrance of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company Co-founder Arnie Zane. Artist Zoe Leonard displays her work Strange Fruit at the Whitney, and discusses its themes of mortality and discrimination with the Brooklyn Rail. The annual Pride March floods 5th Avenue, and devotes a moment of silence to members of the community lost to AIDs and discrimination. The Joyce Theater provides a week of queer programming with performances from both Madboots Dance and Sean Dorsey Dance.
