The Whitney Houston Biennial Serenades New York City Art Scene, 125 Female Voices Create Their Greatest Love of All

THE WHITNEY HOUSTON BIENNIAL: GREATEST LOVE OF ALL

New York - 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 pioneering female artists and marks a moment in our communal trajectory. In this newest incarnation, Finley is asking each artist to select a female pioneer who inspires them to accompany their work of art, thereby expanding the show through generations of inspiring women who came before them.

 “The Whitney Houston Biennial is a feast for the eyes and a celebration of female voices.”  
- Artist and curator C. Finley

The show’s title not only playfully addresses the traditional (and concurrent) exhibit held at the Whitney Museum, but also honors a strong and brilliant lady, five years since her untimely passing.
