epilogue
once i locked in to the “slide show” format for this blog, i was limited to 10 images/post and these 3 got axed, for some reason i want to include them…
the kersels’ piece maybe just for the orange, color is usually something i passionately respond to, in hindsight i have to say that the color aspect was fairly subdued
the sasamoto to remind me to go back when she is performing
and the frecons because they are such beautiful & luminous painting.
thank you to @cmonstah, everyone at @wnycculture & @whitneymuseum & all my fellow tweeps.a special thanks to biennial co-curator gary carrion-murayari for leading our tour
be sure to check out the wnyc wrap up for more links and the whitney biennial site for more on the artists.
and stay tuned for the 24hr/3day asher project  on twitter

personal pov

ultimately, what captivates me is often small moments, odd juxtapositions and an examination of surface.

this slideshow is meant to convey what i saw/felt when going through the biennial,
it’s more emotive than descriptive, more personal than documentary.

body|image

the presence of “body” is very much in evidence at the biennial (though not quite as fleshed out here as i had intended)

this gives the entire exhibition a decidedly visceral feel so that all the work, even that which does not speak directly to the human form, has a very “present” and “alive” quality

this show is not theoretical or abstracted, it seems very rooted in the here & now.

space/flow

one of the things that struck me when i saw the biennial for the first time was how space was handled, more specifically the flow of the exhibition not only between the rooms but from one work to the next.  not shown here, but equally as effective was the inviting environments given to each video installation.

visiting the show has an effortless feeling, almost as if one is being carried through it.

this is no accident; gary (carrion-murayari, co-curator, tour guide & owner of the much tweeted kicks) spoke about how there was a concerted effort made to give the video pieces an equal importance to the painting/sculpture/installations as well as how specifically the museum worked with the artists when it came to placing their work.

tweeps: doing what we do

getting the geeky stuff out of the way first, here we are moving through the exhibition

hopefully this gives a sense of how people interact with the art from a spatial perspective (which i will be addressing further in the next post), though on an average day people would presumably be looking not tweeting

tweeted during the tour

the images below were tweeted & posted to flickr during the #WhiBi tour lead by biennial co-curator Gary Carrion-Murayari.

i will be posting more images from the tour shortly, so please come back.

nb: (a little more information than you need to know): please excuse the titles/captions if visiting on flickr; to quickly create the artist info links while tweeting, i used the bit.ly protocol, flickr sees this as spam and won’t allow me to edit without losing the links.

below are links to the artists in the slideshow on the Whitney’s Biennial website.
