The Whitney – A Work In Progress

Just as the Whitney Biennial is constantly being reinvented, so is the Whitney itself. “We’re always going to be criticized for being trendy, for getting things before they’re fully tested. You can’t afford not to do that, if you’re the Whitney. We have to take risks, and make mistakes, and be light on our feet. Sometimes the things that happen by chance are the best things. The art world is changing, artists are changing, so to have a plan that’s too fixed would defeat what we’re trying to do.”
