Time Out takes first crack at the 2010 Whitney Biennial. Their thoughts? Rather positive. The magazine writes, “The Whitney appears to have finally learned how to mount a decent Biennial, though ironically, the 2010 edition—organized by guest curator Francesco Bonami and Gary Carrion-Murayari, the museum’s senior curatorial assistant—doesn’t suck precisely because it doesn’t feel or look like your average Biennial.”

Perhaps this isn’t the most analytical reading of the exhibition, but the point is well taken. Above is an example from the show, Stephanie Sinclaire’s rather haunting “Self-Immolation in Afghanistan: A Cry for Help.”
