Boston Biennial 4 Wrap Up

by the-biennial-project 7. May 2016 12:56

“The Boston Biennial 4 delivered an evocative and inspiring selection of art of various types of mediums and styles…..Atlantic Works Gallery was bursting with people, compassion and excitement at it’s opening for the Boston Biennial 4 and it’s no question as to why: when the people in charge are just as engaged as the artists involved, it makes for perfect harmony.”  Ali Russo, Artscope Magazine

“The Biennial Project's commitment to building connections between artists here and elsewhere is utterly refreshing. To see them and their collaborators at work is to see artists at the top of their game - working without the net of institutional support, but obviously having a hell of a good time in the process - and nurturing personal and working relationships and networks that feel downright subversive in this day and age.” Alec Onsemska, film-maker and art critic

As you can see from the quotes above, the recently wrapped Boston Biennial 4 was both a resounding success and a rip-roaring good time. We attracted by far the most entries yet for a Boston Biennial, and the quality and diversity of the artwork submitted was staggering. The entire process leading up to the show was the most streamlined ever, what with our master collaborator and web designer Paul K. Weiner creating a sparkling new entry and jurying system for us which automated the process from start to finish. This saved us tons of time over our previous process and let us focus on the fun stuff - assembling an amazing crew of celebrity jurors, communicating with artists worldwide, pouring over the vast amount of great art submitted, and publicizing the show.

Artists traveled from around the country to attend the many packed gala receptions, and the response to the show was thoroughly positive. Now that the show has wrapped, we're just  the littlest bit tired, but absolutely thrilled with the caliber of great art that we got to showcase, and with the amazing people that we got to meet. Now we will enjoy a good 10 minutes of rest before getting back to work.  In the meantime, here are some links to info about this fabulous show:
