Ballroom Marfa is pleased to be part of the 2011 Texas Biennial, which will take place April 9 – May 14, 2011. The Texas Biennial is a project of Big Medium, an Austin-based non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting contemporary visual art in Texas.
This will be the fourth edition of the Texas Biennial, which originated in 2005. The core of each Biennial to date has been a group exhibition of art works selected from submissions gathered from throughout the state. This year artists were selected by 2011 Biennial Curator Virginia Rutledge, a New York-based art historian and art lawyer, who has continued the exhibition’s aim of providing “an independent survey of contemporary Texas art.”
This year the Biennial will grow, as Rutledge has invited non-profit arts venues statewide — including Ballroom Marfa — to support the Biennial with their own, independently
curated exhibitions and other programming. Stay tuned for details about what we’ll be presenting in the spring!
