Whitney Biennial Bucksbaum Award Winner Announced

With its Biennial just three weeks old, the Whitney Museum of American Art is trying to create more buzz by announcing the winner of its second Bucksbaum Award, given to an emerging artist living and working in the United States whose work is in the Biennial. The award carries a $100,000 stipend and residency. This year's winner is Irit Batsry, an Israeli-born video and installation artist whose contribution to this year's Biennial is an eighty-minute film, These Are Not My Images (Neither There Nor Here).
