2017 Whitney Houston Biennial: Greatest Love Of All
The 2017 Whitney Houston Biennial: Greatest Love of All comes as a response to the awakening representation of women artists in major museums and galleries. To highlight female artists in New York this season, curator and artist Christine Finley will host female artists from a varied range of geographic and cultural backgrounds, disciplines, methodologies, and generations. The aim of bringing together so many creative voices is to sing a collective song that celebrates the contributions of pioneer female artists and marks a moment in our communal trajectory.
Performances, conversations, readings, and film screenings, beginning at 6pm every evening.
