Description Two-part catalogue accompanying the Whitney Museum of American Art's exhibition of emerging and established American artists who reflect diverse approaches to process, narrative, materiality, abstraction, conceptual strategies, technology and history. Includes essays by the biennial's three curators, as well as commissioned essays on recent aesthetics by Wayne Koestenbaum and Tim Griffin, juxtaposed with previously published works by writers and artists, illuminating the biennial's emergent themes of nostalgia, the American Gothic, pop sensory overload, gender identities and politics in (and as) art. The book features biographies and illustrations of the work of the 108 artists. It is also accompanied by a box filled with limited-edition commissioned works by each artist. The artists were asked to work in one of several formats: bumper stickers, posters, postcards, filmstrips or mini-magazines. These give the sense that the '60s and '70s' legacy—questions of how to diversify who is making art and what art is made of—are yielding new and lasting results. The exhibition explores the idea of an intergenerational conversation reflecting a number of overlapping trends: an engagement with the art, popular culture, and politics of the late 1960s and early 1970s; the construction of fantastic worlds, uncanny spaces, and new narrative forms; and paintings, drawings, and handmade films that show an obsessive working of line, surface, and image.
