Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Always highly anticipated and beautifully packaged, this book is an essential record of the current trends in contemporary art in America

Since its introduction by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932, the Whitney Biennial has charted new developments in art and brought emerging artists to light. The first to be held in the Whitney’s critically acclaimed new building in Manhattan’s meatpacking district, the 2017 Biennial is curated by Christopher Y. Lew and Mia Locks. Lew and Locks are working in collaboration with a small group of advisors, including Scott Rothkopf, Negar Azimi, Gean Moreno, Aily Nash, and Wendy Yao. With a history of exhibiting work by the most promising and influential artists and provoking debate, the Biennial—the Museum’s signature exhibition—is the longest running survey of American art.
 
This handsome book features texts and images representing the Biennial participants, artists who work in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, film, and performance, as well as essays by the two curators and contributions by the advisors. As a record of the artists and ideas presented in this important survey exhibition, this catalogue serves as an essential resource on current trends in contemporary art in the United States.
