The New York Times recently posted selections of this years Whitney Biennial as interactive 360 panoramic installation shots. It’s pretty similar to Google’s street view but without the zoom feature. Check it out here.

The theme a lot of papers are running with for this year’s Whitney is one of “a depressing wasteland of mediocrity”? Having only seen photos I don’t have an opinion myself but I do have to ask why is something like Charles Long’s sculpture included? I get William Cardova even though I wish it was based on subject matter more current then the 60’s Black Panther movement?
