Awesome Biennial News!

sponsored

Zoe Strauss is in the 2006 Whitney Biennial!!! Here’s the artist’s email blast from the inbox last night, written in her inimitable deadpan style:

UNBELIEVABLE NEWS.
I WILL BE IN THE 2006 WHITNEY BIENNIAL.
MORE LATER.
YOU HEARD ME.
WHITNEY BIENNIAL.

WWW.ZOESTRAUSS.BLOGSPOT.COM

WAIT, SERIOUSLY, THE WHITNEY BIENNIAL.

YOU KNOW, THE WHITNEY BIENNIAL, AS IN THE WHITNEY BIENNIAL.
LOVE,

The full story on her blog is worth a read, too. It tells of the phone call that posed one question, (paraphrasing) “You want to be in the show?” and one answer, “Yes.”

As Rob Matthews put it when he shared the news and the joy and the list of names, “HOLY CRAP!” See today’s NY Times for the Carol Vogel story and in the left bar is a link to the list of names which I’m putting here just to save you the click. I really love some of the pairings which are totally surreal (Dan Graham and Rodney Graham?…Mark de Suvero and Rirkrit Tiravanija?)
