whitney biennial 2014

With the onset of Armory Arts Week, New York City once again becomes the irresistible muse in the art world. Ten art fairs and the Whitney Biennial all vie for undivided attention, each promising to herald new artists and ideas, while preserving the old guard. Highlights include Bad At SportsBedroom Booth, featuring a series of live interviews conducted in bed by soft sculpture maven Amanda Browder at VOLTA; an uplifting installation in Central Park by Swiss artist Olaf Breuning in collaboration with Public Art Fund; a curatorial remix of the Whitney Biennial (perhaps a grand gesture toward the space before the museum permanently relocates downtown in the spring of 2015); and “The Monstrous Self” exhibition curated by Benjamin Sutton which explores our obsession with self-documentation aka “the selfie” at Spring Break Art Show.

Below is a brief overview of events and activities. Have fun!!
