"Though not everything. There’s a very good small show trapped in the body of this very big, bad Biennial. Exemplary in this regard, Zoe Leonard has turned one of the largest single galleries in the museum into a beautiful empty camera obscura, using the Whitney’s distinctive prismatic window as a lens. Here we see the world projected upside-down into the darkened space; traffic runs on the ceiling; building façades reach to the floor. In this reverberating quiet, one of the Whitney’s final uses of its unusual architecture before it moves downtown, we see the place where the real meets the power of the abstract."

Though I was not there enough to make a good judgement call. I would have, surprisingly, said something similar to this. Leonard’s piece was by far my favorite piece and the one I spent the most time with my whole 5 days in New York.
The UK does it again.
I have run across another fantastic artist - Emma McNally. So much good line work and space happening in her work. I also love that she has a liberal arts education and approach to her work by having her degree in English and Philosophy and creating out of that base. You should take some time to look at more of her work below.
