Whitney Biennial Artist List Leaked?


Are these the most important artists of the next two years?

The Whitney Biennial comes around every two years, making kings and queens of previously unknown artists and informing all of us morons who don't know contemporary art from a hole in the ground as to what we should like.

The roster of artists participating is closely guarded until its grand unveiling, but this year there's a list going around that seems like it could in fact be a leaked version of the Whitney's roster. If it is, we have to say we're quite pleased; Out faves like Dennis Cooper, K8 Hardy, Wu Tsang and Kelly Reichardt are all included.
