2021 Atlanta Biennial

2021 Atlanta Biennial

February 18, 2021 – May 30, 2021

Atlanta Contemporary is pleased to announce Dr. Jordan Amirkhani as the curator of the third iteration of the Atlanta Biennial – an exhibition that reemerged in 2016 after a more than ten-year hiatus. The Atlanta Biennial will showcase emerging, mid-career, and established artists.

All project spaces – including newly identified areas of the campus – will be curated by TK Smith.

Since its inception in 1985 the Atlanta Biennial has been an important platform for contemporary art from our region. The exhibition aims to address complexities and deep vernacular traditions of the Southeast and continues the longstanding efforts of Atlanta Contemporary to present and debut newly commissioned work by artists from around our region.
