The Arts and Labor division of the Occupy Wall Street movement has issued a letter today to the Whitney Museum of American Art in Manhattan, requesting that they put an end to the Whitney Biennial. They argue that the Biennial “upholds a system that benefits collectors, trustees, and corporations at the expense of art workers,” and therefore must cease to exist in its current form by 2014. The Biennial, which opens to the public on Thursday, has been a biannual tradition of the museum since 1932 and features work from emerging contemporary American artists.
Read on for the full letter from the Arts and Labor group.
