Artists and Activists Prepare Political Responses to Whitney Biennial
“On February 25, the Whitney Museum of American Art announced the 75 artists who will be participating in the 2019 Whitney Biennial. In the days following, artists and activists have responded to the hotly-anticipated event of contemporary art, which opens May 17, with simultaneous excitement and militancy. These reactions come in response to reports identifying a Whitney vice chairman, Warren Kanders, as the owner and CEO of Safariland, a multi-billion dollar weapons manufacturer. Safariland’s tear gas has been used at political clashes including at Standing Rock, Baltimore, Ferguson, Gaza, and recently, at the US–Mexico border, where it was launched at Central American asylum-seekers.”
