The goal of the Whitney Museum was never to show art quietly. Their mission is to “provoke” and be controversial about current conversations. Conversations do not always have to be verbal, visualization can better enhance the feelings of people, either to express anger or empathy. Artists that exhibit their artwork in the Whitney museum uses various of forms to spark conversations: from regular paintings, to plantings, to using colorful pins. It is not about making sense in artwork, it is about how to use colors, forms, and materials to visualize our world. The Whitney museum is a landmark because of this unique challenge they are willing to propose to the world.
