The 08 Whitney Biennial Top 8

March 31st, 2008 · No Comments · Artists, New York City

The Whitney Biennial is perhaps the most well-known weather forecast of contemporary American art. Many people I’ve talked with about the show were blasé about the 08 version curated by Henriette Huldisch and Shamim M. Momin. I agree that much of the show is unmemmorable, however, there were several notable works. Here’s my top eight:


1) Omer Fast, Production still from The Casting, 2007 (source)


2) Phoebe Washburn, It Makes for My Billionaire Status, 2005 (installation view, Kantor/Feuer Gallery, Los Angeles, 2005) (source)


3) Mika Rottenberg, Still from Cheese, 2007 (source)


4) Lisa Sigal, The Day before Yesterday and the Day after Tomorrow, 2007 (source)


5) Leslie Hewitt, Make It Plain (2 of 5), 2006 (source)


6)Stephen Prina, Sonic Dan, 1996 (source)


7) John Baldessari, Arms & Legs (Specif. Elbows & Knees), Etc.: Elbow (Blue) with Desk, 2007 (source)


8) Melanie Schiff, Water Birth, 2007 (source)
