Welcome to the 2002 Biennial Exhibition, on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art through May 26, 2002. The Biennial is the Museum's signature survey of contemporary American art. This exhibition presents the work of 113 artists and collaborative teams, including gallery works, sound and performance, film and video, and net artists.

Whitney Biennial in Central Park Organized by the Public Art Fund

In a first-time effort, organized by the Public Art Fund, the Biennial moves outdoors to Central Park. Intended to be surprising encounters in the flow of daily life, five major artists' projects were commissioned by the Public Art Fund for specific sites within the park. All five artists -- Keith Edmier, Kim Sooja, Roxy Paine, Kiki Smith, and Brian Tolle -- are New Yorkers. They were selected jointly by Lawrence Rinder, the Anne & Joel Ehrenkranz Curator of Contemporary Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art; and Tom Eccles, Director of the Public Art Fund.

For those already privy to the surprise, tours are given in April and May through a collaboration with the Central Park Conservancy. Also, signs will guide parkgoers on a walking tour of the Whitney Biennial in Central Park. Parkgoers will be able to view each of the five works in one visit, proceeding from the park's southeast entrance, at the corner of 59th Street and Fifth Avenue at Doris C. Freedman Plaza, to the Lake just north of the 72nd Street transverse, and exiting the park near the Whitney Museum.
