Adam D. Weinberg, the Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art, presents a free talk exploring the history of the Whitney Biennial. Inaugurated in 1932 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, the Whitney Biennial remains a celebrated and influential tradition, bringing together artists and curators from across the United States to explore the current state of contemporary art in America. Heralded as a barometer of shifting cultural, social, and political values, the Whitney Biennale has a long history of exhibiting the most promising and influential artists and for provoking debate.   

Adam D. Weinberg became the Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum in October 2003. During his tenure, the Whitney has presented major exhibitions on a wide range of artists, including William Eggleston, Yayoi Kusama, Sherrie Levine, Glenn Ligon, Gordon Matta-Clark, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ed Ruscha, and Jeff Koons; offered award-winning educational programs; and experienced dramatic growth in its permanent collection; and, in 2015, opened its new 220,000-square-foot building in the Meatpacking District.

The Rapp Lecture on Contemporary Art is named in honour of Carol and Morton Rapp.
