Cool Hunting Video Presents: Whitney Biennial 2008

We take a look a the Whitney's biennial exhibition through the eyes of the man who literally puts it together

This time around we chose to cover the Whitney Biennial with help from the museum’s exhibition designer, Mark Steigelman. Last week’s video on Olaf Breuning included a glimpse of his Biennial installation at the Park Avenue Armory (an off-site component that’s new this year) and this episode is a select survey of the works by the 50-odd artists showing at the Whitney. Mark explains the challenges of laying out such a monumental exhibit, shows us a few of his prized sight-lines and points out architectural features unique to the Marcel Breuer-designed building.
