The American Effect: Whitney Museum of American Art. (New York).

With millions across the world demonstrating against the war in Iraq, the timing is no doubt auspicious for "The American Effect," an extensive international exhibition exploring perceptions of American culture and society abroad. Curated by the Whitney's Lawrence Rinder, the show will include approximately forty works produced since 1990 in all media by artists from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas, ranging in content and tone from gauzy idealizing of the American dream to hostile jeremiads. Among the forty-odd artists included are Miwa Yanagi from Japan, Sergei Bugaev Afrika from Russia, and Bodys Isek Kingelez from Congo. The catalogue includes essays by Luc Sante, Nawal El Saadawi, and Ian Buruma, among other. July 3 Oct. 12.
