“This year’s Whitney Biennial is three biennials,” Whitney Director Adam Weinberg told the press yesterday, noting that each floor belongs to a singular curator with Anthony Elms taking the second, Stuart Comer the third, and Michelle Grabner the fourth. Dividing up the Biennial points to the problems of its scale; with over 103 artists, along with numerous performances and lengthy media (including a screening of Andrew Bujalski’s 2013 film Computer Chess in its entirety), this Biennial’s one for repeat viewings. And so the 2014 Whitney Biennial cannot be just one thing: It is both an exhibition and a process.
