Whitney Biennial curator Larry Rinder's wish list seems so feckless and capricious, that, who knows, it might make for a good show, especially on the tech end.
At least they invited back the terrific Jeremy Blake. But Collier Schorr? Peter Sarkisian? I don't think so.
Why not play at home? Just pick your list of biennialites (30 seems a workable number) and email your art-world friends.
There are many good artists out there nowadays, so the variety should be limitless. Perhaps, some enterprising curator will glean the lists for a counter bienissimo?
My list lies below -- which leaves us with the question, would a destitute Mariko Mori be able to call five company employees over to fix a plumbing problem?
As for the Whitney's future biennials, couldn't we just move them to P.S. 1?
