The Whitney has released its full list of artist who will participate in the 2017 biennial. The statement describes the exhibition’s theme regarding “The formation of self and the individual’s place in a turbulent society are among the key themes reflected in the work of the artists selected for the 2017 Whitney Biennial. The exhibition includes sixty-three participants, ranging from emerging to well-established individuals and collectives working in painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, film and video, photography, activism, performance, music, and video game design.” Among the sixty-three participants is current core faculty member Cauleen Smith. Cauleen was VCFA MFA Visual Art program Artist-in-Residence in August 2011. She went on to be a recurrent visiting faculty member and since 2014 she has been on the core faculty team.
You will also see a familiar name in this list; former faculty member Ulrike Müller (born 1971 in Austria, lives in New York) whose work engages relationships between abstraction and bodies and a concept of painting that is not restricted to brush and canvas. Employing a wide range of materials and techniques, including performance, publishing, and textiles, her work moves between different contexts and publics, invites collaboration, and expands to other realms of production in processes of exploration and exchange. Müller was involved with VCFA from 2008-2011, serving as guest artist, critic, and core faculty.
Congratulations to all of the artists. The show, which opens March 17 and runs until June 11, is co-curated by Christopher Lew and Mia Locks. To read more about the 2017 Biennal Curators click here.Running Sneakers Store | Nike Dunk Low Coast UNCL – Grailify
