Alison Jacques congratulates Veronica Ryan OBE on her forthcoming participation in the Whitney Biennial 2022, the 80th edition of this landmark exhibition. Titled ‘Quiet as It’s Kept’, the exhibition will include the work of 63 artists and will be on view from 6 April–5 September 2022 at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
Ryan’s inclusion follows ‘Along a Spectrum’, a major exhibition at Spike Island, Bristol (2021), and the recent unveiling of Custard Apple (Annonaceae), Breadfruit (Moraceae) and Soursop (Annonaceae) (2021) in Hackney, London, the UK’s first permanent public sculptures to celebrate and honour the Windrush Generations. In September 2022, Ryan will present her debut exhibition at Alison Jacques, London.
The Whitney Biennial is co-organized by David Breslin, DeMartini Family Curator and Director of Curatorial Initiatives, and Adrienne Edwards, Engell Speyer Family Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs, with Gabriel Almeida Baroja, Curatorial Project Assistant, and Margaret Kross, former Senior Curatorial Assistant.
