In what was the art event of the year, the new Whitney Museum of American Art opened last May in The Standard, High Line's back yard. Literally. It's so close you can actually spy into the galleries from your bedroom. Chief Curator Donna De Salvo talked to us about the opening show, America is Hard to See.

And down the block from The Standard, East Village, curator Lauren Cornell and superstar artist Ryan Trecartin tackled humanity's complicated relationship with technology for the New Museum's Triennial. Ms. Cornell talked us through the making of one of the most lauded art shows of the year, "Surround Audience".
