Whitney Biennial Reveals Artist List for 2022 Edition

The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, has announced the artists who will be participating in the 2022 Whitney Biennial. Titled “Quiet as It’s Kept,” after a colloquialism inspired by novelist Toni Morrison, jazz drummer Max Roach, and artist David Hammons, all of whom have invoked it in their works, the event will feature the work of a diverse array of sixty-three artists and collectives in various stages of their careers. The Biennial will run from April 6 through September 5, with select programs continuing through October 23; it is being co-organized by Whitney curators David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards.In a joint statement, the pair addressed the profound changes in the landscape since the last iteration of the Biennial took place in 2019, noting, “We began planning for this exhibition, originally slated to open in 2021, almost a year before the 2020 election, before the pandemic and shutdown with their reeling effects, before the uprisings demanding racial justice and before the questioning of institutions and their structures.” They went on to acknowledge that “while many of these underlying conditions are not new, their overlapping, intensity, and sheer ubiquity created a context in which past, present, and future folded into one another. We’ve organized the exhibition to reflect these precarious and improvised times. The Biennial primarily serves as a forum for artists, and the works that will be presented reflect their enigmas, the things that perplex them, the important questions they are asking.”The 2022 Biennial will largely take place on the fifth and sixth floors of the Whitney; these spaces will be made to serve as counterpoints to each other, with one floor darkened and laid out like a labyrinth additionally containing what the press release calls a “space of reserve”; the other floor will be bright and open, recalling a clearing. Artists from Mexico, First Nations artists from Canada, and aritsts born outside of North America will investigate the dynamics of borders and explore what is meant by and contained within the term “American.”“Rather than proposing a unified theme, we pursue a series of hunches throughout the exhibition: that abstraction demonstrates a tremendous capacity to create, share, and, sometimes withhold, meaning; that research-driven conceptual art can combine the lushness of ideas and materiality; that personal narratives sifted through political, literary, and pop cultures can address larger social frameworks; that artworks can complicate what ‘American’ means by addressing the country’s physical and psychological boundaries; and that our ‘now’ can be reimagined by engaging with under-recognized artistic models and artists we’ve lost,” explained the curators.A complete list of artists is below.Lisa AlvaradoBorn 1982 in San AntonioLives in ChicagoHarold AncartBorn 1980 in BrusselsLives in New YorkMónica ArreolaBorn 1976 in Tijuana, MexicoLives in Tijuana, MexicoEmily BarkerBorn 1992 in San DiegoLives in Los AngelesYto BarradaBorn 1971 in ParisLives in Brooklyn, NY, and Tangier, MoroccoRebecca BelmoreBorn 1960 in Upsala, CanadaLives in Vancouver, Canada AnishinaabeJonathan BergerBorn 1980 in New YorkLives in New York and Glover, VTNayland BlakeBorn 1960 in New YorkLives in Brooklyn and Queens, NYCassandra PressFounded 2016 by Kandis WilliamsTheresa Hak Kyung ChaBorn 1951 in Busan, South KoreaDied 1982 in New YorkRaven ChaconBorn 1977 in Fort Defiance, Navajo NationLives in Albuquerque, NMDinéLeidy ChurchmanBorn 1979 in Villanova, PALives in New York and West Tremont, METony CokesBorn 1956 in Richmond, VALives in Providence, RIJacky ConnollyBorn 1990 in New YorkLives in Brooklyn, NYMatt ConnorsBorn 1973 in ChicagoLives in New York and Los AngelesAlex Da CorteBorn 1980 in Camden, NJLives in PhiladelphiaAria DeanBorn 1993 in Los AngelesLives in New YorkDanielle DeanBorn 1982 in Huntsville, ALLives in Los Angeles and San DiegoJane DicksonBorn 1952 in ChicagoLives in New YorkBuck EllisonBorn 1987 in San FranciscoLives in Los AngelesAlia FaridBorn 1985 in Kuwait CityLives in San Juan, PR, and Kuwait CityCoco FuscoBorn 1960 in New YorkLives in Brooklyn, NYEllen GallagherBorn 1965 in Providence, RILives in Rotterdam and Brooklyn, NYA Gathering of the Tribes /Steve CannonFounded 1991Steve Cannon: Born 1935 in New OrleansDied 2019 in New YorkCy GavinBorn 1985 in PittsburghLives in New York StateAdam GordonBorn 1986 in MinneapolisLives in Jersey City, NJRenée GreenBorn 1959 in ClevelandLives in Somerville, MA, and New YorkPao Houa HerBorn 1982 in LaosLives in Blaine, MNEJ HillBorn 1985 in Los AngelesLives in Los AngelesAlfredo JaarBorn 1956 in Santiago, ChileLives in New YorkRindon Johnson Born 1990 in San FranciscoLives in BerlinIvy Kwan Arce and Julie TolentinoIvy Kwan Arce: Born 1965 in Salinas, CALives in New YorkJulie Tolentino: Born 1964 in San FranciscoLives in Joshua Tree, CARalph LemonBorn 1952 in CincinnatiLives in Brooklyn, NYDuane LinklaterBorn 1976 in Treaty 9 Territory (Northern Ontario, Canada)Lives in North Bay, Canada (Robinson Huron Treaty Territory)Omaskêko IniniwakJames LittleBorn 1952 in MemphisLives in New YorkRick LoweBorn 1961 in rural AlabamaLives in HoustonDaniel Joseph MartinezBorn 1957 in Los AngelesLives in Los Angeles and ParisDave McKenzieBorn 1977 in Kingston, JamaicaLives in Brooklyn, NYRodney McMillianBorn 1969 in Columbia, SCLives in Los AngelesNa MiraBorn 1982 in Lawrence, KS, on Kickapoo, Osage, Kansa, and Sioux landsLives in Los Angeles on Tongva, Gabrielino, Kizh, and Chumash landsAlejandro “Luperca” MoralesBorn 1990 in Ciudad Juárez, MexicoLives in Monterrey, MexicoMoved by the MotionFounded 2016 by Wu Tsang and Tosh BascoTerence NanceBorn 1982 in DallasLives in AmericaWoody De OthelloBorn 1991 in MiamiLives in Oakland, CAAdam PendletonBorn 1984 in Richmond, VALives in New YorkN.H.
