Two years ago, I was asked to collaborate in a project organized by
Miltos Manetas to problematize the disciplinary agendas of shows like
the Whitney Biennial by being a co-curator of a site called
whitneybiennial.com, which gained worldwide attention.
One year ago, Miltos asked be for a quick reflection upon the events and
the issues whitneybiennial.com dealt with for the CD release of the
site. Seldom am I 'quick' or 'brief', and although the bulk of the
paper was formed in 2003, it was not completed.
Today, those reflections are complete, and I submit them to you as
additional view of the whitneybiennial.com intervention. The final
essay is called, "Confessions of a whitneybiennial.com Curator", and it
is slightly too long for most listservs to accept as a text. Therefore
I offer it to you as a PDF from my website with my humblest
