Whitney Biennial 2017: Best Performance Artist 'Seb-The Younger' By Barry Kostrinsky
by Barry Kostrinsky - May 24, 2017

There is so much wrong with the Whitney Biennial I hardly know where to start. The every two year show of American artists is anything but that. I asked someone if the last biennial was two or three years ago and they quipped back it is a biennial, it was two years ago. Actually it was three years ago. The museum truthfully tells they were not ready for the show in the new building and gave themselves an extra year. lyingly they say it took the curators a long time to visit all the studios across the country. The exhibit is suppose to be of American artists. What is an American artist these days? Indeed a good 30% don't live nor work in the US. I don't find much use for national cheering in exhibitions but if you claim to be American have only American cheese, no matter how inferior it is to Gruyere. And what is the title of the exhibit? There is none. Indeed such a disperse group of artists makes a title hard to stick to many of the members, maybe a good title would  be,' Politically, Financially and Socially correct enough to make it here'.
