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.
People's Biennial is a traveling exhibition organized and circulated by ICI (Independent Curators International), New York. Guest curators for the exhibition are Harrell Fletcher and Jens Hoffmann. The exhibition, tour, and catalogue are made possible, in part, by a grant from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation; the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; ICI Benefactors Agnes Gund, Gerrit and Sydie Lansing, Jo Carole Lauder, and Barbara and John Robinson; and the ICI Partners.
