Radiovisual podcaster Michael Connor asks where the “Red State” artists are in this year’s Whitney Biennial, in episode #004 of the Radiovisual podcast.
“I don’t know what the purpose of the Whitney Biennial is, if it’s not to represent a nation of artists. I don’t feel like the Biennial did that. So here’s my question; where are the artists from the flyover States? From the red States? There just not there. I’m sure there’s artists out there – I want to see them.”
For what it’s worth, Georgia is still definitively red, and no artists from Georgia were selected for this year’s Biennial, where 33 of 55 artists selected live and work in New York.
