Whitney Museum of American Art, 1997 - Art - 208 pages
Renowned as the most provocative survey of recent developments in contemporary American art, the Whitney Museum's Biennial Exhibition is a major event in the art world, always stimulating lively discussion and controversy. This catalogue of the next Biennial, opening in New York City in March 1997, focuses on the work of approximately 65 artists. It includes painting, sculpture, film, video, video installations, site-specific pieces created especially for the exhibition, and a World Wide Web component.
This volume, which include essays by Phillips and Neri, among others, not only makes the exhibition more accessible and informative, but also encompasses a cross section of current cultural thought.
