while i was in nyc last week i made a point to go check out the whitney biennial. overall there wasn't too much that i was excited about. that is, except for the series of paintings by storm tharp, which i really really like. a lot. unfortunately they were placed in a room with marianne vitale berating the art audience via video, which was both annoying and attention getting; so these paintings probably didn't get as much eye time as they should have.
