Art: This Whitney Biennial Will Take In the World

A good article from the NY Times about the upcoming Whitney Biennial 2006. Excerpt:

"Another first claimed by the museum is that this year's biennial, which is to open on March 2, has a title: Day for Night.
It is inspired by the English title of François Truffaut's 1973 film, "La Nuit Américaine," which became famous for using a cinematic technique of shooting night scenes during the day by using a special filter. The title was chosen to reflect the kind of restless, in-between moment that the curators believe defines art now - somewhere between day and night, when work may be irrational, religious, dark, erotic or violent."
