"We didn’t want to just do a show on the Whitney’s fourth floor. It didn’t make sense to carry over the trappings of theater into a museum structure. It would be a forced fit. In my work, I embrace the environment and the circumstances. So you’ll see me working with four or five actors, a set designer, a costume designer, and some other folks. We’re rehearsing our next play. It’s a real work, not something we’re drumming up for the biennial."
Playwright Richard Maxwell wrote 500 words about his Biennial residency for Artforum. His company, New York City Players, will be on the 4th Floor of the Whitney Museum through April 29.
