Whitney Biennial Invasion
March 12, 2004 @ 7-9pm
Whitney Museum @ 945 Madison Avenue (x-street: 75th Street), Manhattan

It is as crucial for us to be aware of the forces that shape contemporary artmaking as it is to engage ourselves in the greater dialogue of the arts, to get out and go to the galleries and museums, to attend performances and literary events, to read and experience as much as we can across all the genres. This is a staple when it comes to feeding our creative minds, and gaining the inspiration to continue making new work. This year's Biennial professes to be "reflecting on a reinvigoration of contemporary American art at a moment of profound change in our cultural landscape." As we're all being influenced by this profound change, it'll be fascinating to explore the ways it is expressed in the works of this year's Biennial stars, and to see how our own work is informed by and contributing to the current aesthetic trends. As a group, we'll view and discuss the Biennial works. We also plan to engage with other Biennial visitors and probe them for their thoughts on the relevance of art in the world today.

Reminiscent of the group's well-known interactive collaboration, "Conversation Pieces," The Exhibitionists have selected the following 5 questions to pose to the Whitney Biennial 2004 viewers:

1. What do you think about the Whitney Biennial?
2. What role does art play in your life?
3. Are you an artist?
4. Why do you care about art?
5. How do you support the arts?

Question #1, Question #2, Question #3, Question #4 and Question #5
