People’s Biennial is a traveling exhibition organized by Independent Curators International. Art institutions in Portland, OR, Rapid City, SD, Winston-Salem, NC, Scottsdale, AZ, and Haverford, PA will present a biennial of contemporary art consisting of works by five artists in each of the institutions’ local communities, selected by the show’s guest curators, Harrell Fletcher and Jens Hoffmann.

Drawing on a series of open calls, People’s Biennial will feature artists who haven’t had significant exposure, or who may not even consider themselves part of the “art world.”

Children’s science fair projects, mathematicians’ notebooks, painted window displays, collections of all kinds–by presenting the work of local artists who would not typically show in a gallery or museum, People’s Biennial explores the limits of traditional exhibition models, questioning the exclusivity of the art world and considering sustainable alternatives.
