After a nine-year hiatus, the Atlanta Biennial is returning this year. Set to take place from August 27 to December 18, 2016, the exhibition will feature 33 artists from 8 different states across the southeast United States. The full list of participating artists was announced today (see below).
This year’s exhibition is co-curated by four people: Victoria Camblin, Editor + Artistic Director of the Atlanta-based art magazine, “ART PAPERS”; Daniel Fuller, the main Curator at the Atlanta Contemporary; Aaron Levi Garvey, an independent curator and co-founder of Long Road Projects; and Gia Hamilton, the Director of the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans.The Atlanta biennial was founded in 1984 Alan Sondheim, then-curator of Atlanta’s Nexus Contemporary, as a reaction to that year’s , in which there were no southern artists represented. The exhibition ran strong from then until 2007 when it was indefinitely suspended.
