The 2022 Whitney Biennial is accompanied by this landmark volume. Each of the biennial’s approximately 60 participants is represented by a selected exhibition history, a bibliography, and imagery complemented by a personal statement or interview that foregrounds the artist’s own voice. Essays by the curators and other contributors elucidate themes of the exhibition and discuss the participants. The 2022 Biennial’s two curators, David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards, are known for their close collaboration with living artists. Coming after several years of seismic upheaval in and beyond the cultural, social, and political landscapes, this catalogue will offer a new take on the storied institution of the Biennial while continuing to serve—as previous editions have—as an invaluable resource on present-day trends in contemporary art in the United States.

David Breslin is DeMartini Family Curator and Director of Curatorial Initiatives, and Adrienne Edwards is Engell Speyer Family Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs, both at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
