The Whitney Biennial Homes In on American Precarity

Uh Oh, Look Who Got Wet (2019), Janiva Ellis’s contribution to the latest biennial exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, is a painting of a border: fence, river, palm trees, storm on the horizon, and figures making their treacherous way across. The landscape—something of a departure for Ellis, who often paints surrealist portraits—captures a woman, partially dressed, carrying a child as she wades through the stream at a break in the fence. With a third hand, the woman is peeling back the skin from her face, revealing an expression that falls somewhere between fatigue and resolve. The child she bears is an animal, a bizarro canine creature. Another woman lies stretched out on the riverbank, possibly dead. Her lower half is a messy red pattern that could be a tie-dye skirt—or maybe it’s her intestines, strewn over the shore.

Where Ellis’s mother figure is running, or what she’s fleeing, remains unseen. But the tension is apparent in her face and posture, and in the fact that she is in this moment crossing, or trespassing, the boundary marked by the fence. Such precariousness is also a theme of this year’s show, which explores an America that is, like the woman on the border, suspended between exhaustion and determination. The 2019 Whitney Biennial—which comprises the work of 75 artists and collectives, the majority of whom are non-white, half of whom identify as women, and three-quarters of whom are under 40 years old—is a steadfast survey of anxiety and identity. It is a quiet show, compared to recent editions. And it arrives at a difficult time for the Whitney program, especially after the 2017 biennial was marked by protests over a portrait of the body of Emmett Till by a white artist, Dana Schutz. But the latest biennial finds balance in …read more

Tori Roloff Expresses Concern Over Second Pregnancy

Tori, Jackson and Zach Roloff

Tori Rolof is a little bit worried.

She’s a tad bit concerned.

She has at least one reason to not be totally psyched over her second pregnancy.

The Little People, Big World star excitedly announced to her followers in mid-May that she and husband Zach will soon welcome a sibling for son Jackson.

“We are so excited to announce that Jackson is going to be a big brother!” the couple shared at the time, revealing the gender of the impending baby as follows: “We can not wait to meet our sweet baby girl!”

Ever since confirming this amazing news, Tori has been answering a bunch of questions from interested fans.

For example: Like her father and her brother, will this child be a little person?

Maybe, Tori replied. The odds are 50/50, she said.

What about how this pregnancy compares to her first?

Tori and Jackson became parents for the first time in May of 2017 and Tori said back then that things went relatively smoothly.

There were uncomfortable moments for sure, but she really couldn’t complain very much, not compared to what some other women go through.

This time around, however?

Tori admits it’s “a lot harder” than that first time because she has “all the symptoms,” but she still sounds far happier and excited than miserable about the experience, as you can see:

Like we mentioned above, though, Tori does have one concern.

“Pregnancy in the summer. This is going to be interesting,” the 27-year-old wrote on her Instagram late this week. “It’s hot.”

This is a very fair point, especially for someone who lives in Oregon.

If it’s 80 degrees in May, as Roloff explains in the photo below, how scorching will it be in August? When Tori has a serious baby bump going on?!?

This is just one more reason why women are a million times tougher than men, let’s be …read more
