The Whitney Biennial – Quiet as It’s Kept | Whitney Museum of American Art

The Whitney Biennial is the longest-running survey of American art, and has been a hallmark of the Museum since 1932. The subtitle of the 2022 Biennial, Quiet as It’s Kept, is a colloquialism. The phrase is typically said prior to something—often obvious—that should be kept secret. All of the Whitney’s Biennials serve as forums for artists, and the works on view reflect their enigmas, the things that perplex them, and the important questions they are asking. In its eightieth iteration, the Biennial continues to function as an ongoing experiment.
