“WHITNEY BIENNIAL 2022: QUIET AS IT’S KEPT”
The latest edition of the long-running biennial survey at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, exploring cultural and social issues animating contemporary art in the U.S., takes its title from a phrase invoked by novelist Toni Morrison, jazz drummer Max Roach, and artist David Hammons. The exhibition, opening April 6, serves as a rumination on the harmful effects of secrecy and silence. Co-organized by David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards, the show spotlights 63 artists and collectives across a range of disciplines and media, including Ralph Lemon, Woody De Othello, and Kandis Williams, as it looks at the impact of the ongoing global pandemic, racial and economic inequity, and polarizing politics.
