Whitney Announces Artists for 2010 Biennial

Precisely a year after announcing the curatorial team for its 2010 biennial, the Whitney Museum of American Art is making the holidays of 56 artists that much merrier (if George Condo can ever be described as merry). The museum has just revealed the artists that will be included in the 2010 biennial, named simply “2010,” which will run from February 25 through May 30. “The artists selected for this year’s exhibition reflect diverse responses to the anxiety and optimism of the past two years,” noted curators Francesco Bonami and Gary Carrion-Murayari in a statement issued this morning. “‘2010’ does not privilege any one medium or aesthetic style, but rather assembles a wide range of individual gestures, personal histories, and improvised encounters that speak to a sense of openness and community.” And speaking of improvised encounters, we’ll refrain from listing all the names—from David Adamo to Robert Williams—in favor of sharing with you Pierce Jackson‘s charming video version:
