Benefit Week | Tour of the Whitney Biennial

April 9 @ 3:00 pm

Whitney Biennial logo

Please join us at the Whitney Museum of American Art for a private tour of the 2022 Whitney Biennial.

The 80th edition of the biennial, entitled Quiet as It’s Kept, will showcase the work of 63 artists and collectives distributed throughout most of the museum’s space.

Quiet as It’s Kept—a colloquialism typically said before the statement of something obviously meant to be kept a secret—was selected as the title after the co-organizers, curators David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards, were inspired by the usage of the phrase in a Toni Morrison novel and as the title of a Max Roach album. ‘The 2022 biennial arrives at a time haunted by a global pandemic and plagued by ongoing racial and economic inequities and polarizing politics,’ says Adam D. Weinberg, the museum’s Alice Pratt Brown director. ‘The artists in the exhibition challenge us to consider how these realities affect our senses of self and community and offer one of the broadest and most diverse takes on art in the United States that the Whitney has offered in many years.'”

– Pili Swanson, Gotham Magazine

The Whitney Biennial is the longest-running survey of American art, and has been a hallmark of the Museum since 1932. Initiated by the Museum’s founder Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney as an invitational exhibition featuring artwork created in the preceding two years, the biennials were originally organized by medium, with painting alternating with sculpture and works on paper. Starting in 1937, the Museum shifted to yearly exhibitions called Annuals. The current format—a survey show of work in all media occurring every two years—has been in place since 1973. More than 3,600 artists have participated in a biennial or annual.

This is the second of two tours on Saturday, April 9. The first is at 1:30pm. Please click here if you are looking for the 1:30pm tour.

This program is $30 for ArtTable members, who may bring an additional guests for $45.
Capacity is limited.

Benefit Week | Tour of ‘Faith Ringgold: American People’ at the New Museum

April 8 @ 4:00 pm

Painting by Faith Ringgold

Please join us at the New Museum after our Annual Benefit & Award Ceremony for a private tour of Faith Ringgold: American People. Our tour will be led by Curatorial Assistant, Madeline Weisburg. Bringing together over fifty years of work, the exhibition provides the most comprehensive assessment to date of the artist’s vision.

Artist, author, educator, and organizer, Faith Ringgold is one of the most influential cultural figures of her generation. Her career links the multi-disciplinary practices of the Harlem Renaissance to the political art of young Black artists working today. For sixty years, Ringgold has drawn from both personal autobiography and collective histories to both document her life as an artist and mother and to amplify the struggles for social justice and equity. From creating some of the most indelible artworks of the civil rights era to challenging accepted hierarchies of art versus craft through her experimental story quilts, Faith Ringgold has produced a body of work that bears witness to the complexity of the American experience.

This program is $35 and open to ArtTable members only. Capacity is limited.

About the Exhibition

Faith Ringgold: American People is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of this groundbreaking artist’s vision, highlighted by the first full presentation of her historic French Collection in over twenty years along with many other quintessential works that will be exhibited together for the first time in decades. Featuring Ringgold’s best-known series, this show examines the artist’s figurative style as it evolved to meet the urgency of political and social change. The exhibition also foregrounds her radical explorations of gender and racial identities, which the artist incorporates into the rich textures of her paintings, soft sculptures, and story quilts. Among the most important artworks of the past fifty years, Ringgold’s fabric works combine local traditions and global references to compose a polyphonic history of this country. Long overdue, this retrospective provides a timely opportunity to experience the art of an American icon.
