Queen’s alumni are invited to attend the annual Whitney Museum experience this May, featuring the Whitney Biennial, the seventy-eighth instalment of the longest-running survey of American art.

We encourage all those interested to register and pay in advance for this special event as we will not be accepting payment and registration on the day of the event.

The 2017 Whitney Biennial, the seventy-eighth installment of the longest-running survey of American art, arrives at a time rife with racial tensions, economic inequities, and polarizing politics. Throughout the exhibition, artists challenge us to consider how these realities affect our senses of self and community. The Biennial features sixty-three individuals and collectives whose work takes a wide variety of forms, from painting and installation to activism and video-game design.
