The formation of self and the individual’s place in a turbulent society are among the key themes reflected in the work of the artists selected for the 2017 Whitney Biennial. The exhibition includes sixty-three participants, ranging from emerging to well-established individuals and collectives working in painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, film and video, photography, activism, performance, music, and video game design.

The Whitney Biennial is the longest running survey of contemporary art in the United States, with a history of exhibiting the most promising and influential artists and provoking lively debate. The 2017 Biennial is the Museum’s seventy-eighth in a continuous series of Annual and Biennial exhibitions initiated by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932. It is the first to be held in the Whitney’s downtown home at 99 Gansevoort Street, and the largest ever in terms of gallery space.

Release of the A.I.R. Gallery Community Cookbook!

Hi! Okada's cook recipes also included in the cookbook. Please check it out!


In 2014 Dina Kantor was selected as an A.I.R. Gallery Fellow.
As part of the program, fellows are asked to create a community
project. At the time, Kantor had just begun a new body of work
about community cookbooks and their relationship to identity
(still in progress), so she took the opportunity to create
a community cookbook for the gallery.

The resulting cookbook studies how the food we make and

share with family, friends and our communities plays a large
role in our identities.

Besides being a collection of recipes and tips that were

contributed by members, staff, fellows and other artists affiliated
with A.I.R., the book also includes photographs exploring the
identities of the artists who shared them. Kantor photographed
the artists in their studios, examining the links between creativity
in the kitchen and in their art practice.



The cookbook is softcover, 8.5˝ x 11˝, with 152 pages,
82 recipes and 80 color photographs. It is available for
purchase through Blurb for $40 by clicking here. In true
community cookbook style, a portion of the sales will be
donated directly back to A.I.R. Gallery's Fellowship program.
