Every two years, the Whitney Museum of American Art puts together a survey of work across all mediums.This year's show features sixty-three artists. The title, Quiet As It's Kept, refers to things that may be obvious but are kept a secret or otherwise not discussed. It's interesting to think about this idea in the light of current society; the way COVID was/continues to be handled, racial injustice, and the political and cultural landscape. Most, if not all of the work presented in the Biennial touch on these themes in some form, yet they differ vastly from one another. From small drawings to moving sculptures to an immersive video accompanied by fans, each room of this exhibition is unique.
