Exhibitions NYC | Images from the Whitney Biennal

I finally visited the biennial exhibition . As in the past 30 years media have merged in the last decade the boundary between art and life, private and public, has definitely been blurred, as witnessed by this year biennial. I found it generally uninspiring, re-presenting installation and performances already seen and often lacking the aesthetic qualities and depth of thought which should differentiate life from art.
With a few exception: the multichannel video installation of filmmaker Werner Hergoz stood in its lyrical beauty and profound meaning.
