ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York previewed the works of its biennial exhibition on Monday (March 13), a collection of new works that a museum curator said represents the current state of contemporary arts. "It's a show about people's lives, about the issues that matter to them," said Scott Rothkopf, the museum's deputy director for programs and Nancy and Steve Crown family chief curator. "You saw the Postcommodity piece, these are a collective of artists that live near the border, with Mexico, and they're making work about a place that's very charged and affects their own existence. I think that there's maybe not one theme, but certainly many people responding to the issues of the day, but also with beauty, with grace, with metaphor. You'll see abstract paintings, you'll see the incredible stained glass window that Raul made, which turns the museum into a cathedral and in many ways that is what a museum is, it's a gathering place, it's a place for reflection, it's a place that we can come together as a community, and I think that this show really insists on that," he continued. The 2017 biennial was curated by Mia Locks and Christopher Lew and includes films, paintings, photographs and sculptures by 63 artists chosen for the high-profile exhibition. Whitney Museum's 2017 biennial kicks off on March 17, and will run through June 11.
