The Whitney Biennial

Location: Whitney Museum, 945 Madison Avenue
Dates: March 1-May 27
Admission: $18 general; $12 students

Despite its conveniently-timed opening date, the Biennial is not technically a part of the Armory Week madness – it’s just the Whitney Biennial.  On the other hand, it is THE Whitney Biennial, one of contemporary art’s defining events, and you really should stop by.  The museum will be open for regular visiting hours this week, but is also hosting several performances, screenings, and tours in conjunction with the Biennial.
