Texas Biennial

Texas Biennial Anniversary Exhibition, Lawndale Art Center

Participating Organizations

The Texas Biennial enlists art organizations and artist collectives across the state to join the 2017 Biennial in celebrating the excellence and diversity of contemporary art made in Texas by participating with their own independent programming.

Participation can mean any recognition of contemporary art created by artists living and working in the state. For the Texas Biennial in 2011, the first year this program was established, participating organizations scheduled special artist talks and lectures, designated works by Texas artists on display in their permanent collections, installed temporary exhibitions of work by one or more local artists, and highlighted exhibitions featuring contemporary Texas artists.

Programming by TX★17 participating organizations will be highlighted during the run of the Texas Biennial open call group survey exhibition.
