Maiza Hixson, Men are Much Harder 2 (Extended), 2006-2010 Single-channel color video with sound, 48 mins.
People’s Biennial presents 36 contemporary artists who work in and near cities not traditionally considered American “art capitals”: Portland, Oregon; Rapid City, South Dakota; Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Haverford, Pennsylvania. Finding artworks through a series of local open calls, studio visits, and serendipitous encounters, curators Harrell Fletcher and Jens Hoffman present a diverse body of drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, films, schematics, collections, and other works, questioning existing curatorial practice and the established avenues and institutions of the art world.
Please join us for the final iteration of People’s Biennial at Haveford College, which will begin with an opening reception on Friday, January 27, from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Artist Maiza Hixson will be on-hand to conduct interviews with visitors from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. People’s Biennial Portland-area artist, Rudy Speerschneider will be in attendance and serving homemade ice cream from his Junior Ambassador’s Food Cart: A Mostlandian Venture during the opening.
