ROGUE VALLEY BIENNIAL 2017

CALL TO ARTISTS

PURPOSE: As is the tradition of long-standing biennial exhibitions, such as the Venice Biennale in Italy and the Whitney Biennial in New York City, the Rogue Valley Biennial will present the “art of our time.”

  • Work that is innovative, showcasing contemporary visual artists, both emerging and established.
  • Work that includes subject matter, processes, and materials that reflect 21st century perspectives and concerns.
  • The work included in the exhibit may contain politically and socially relevant content, be provocative in subject matter and imagery, and challenge viewers’ aesthetic perceptions.


THE ROGUE VALLEY BIENNIAL IS A FORUM FOR THE CULTIVATION,
UNDERSTANDING, AND APPRECIATION OF REGIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART.
