A recent post on ArtLog by Grace-Yvette Gemmell describes a group of exceptional shows that appear to be questioning the current state of biennials, triennials, and other large group shows. One of these projects mentioned, ICI’s People’s Biennial, is described as taking “a stab at the genre through the representation of non-sanctioned artists across the United States with a focus on artists working in cities that are on the margin of the art world (Portland, Oregon; Rapid City, South Dakota; Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Haverford, Pennsylvania). The show concentrates on the overlooked, the marginalized, and the excluded in an attempt to provide a snapshot of current artistic practice in America.”
ArtLog will continue to publish interviews with curators related to these genre expanding exhibitions in the next month. To read the article in full, please click here.
