Terrain Biennial Newburgh 2021
September 25 @ 12:00 PM - November 15 @ 6:00 PM| Free
Terrain Biennial Newburgh is an exhibition of art installations hosted on front yards, porches, windows, and building facades throughout the city, free and available to all who pass by. Artists work with Newburgh residents to integrate art into everyday spaces where it is most visible and least expected. The exhibition opens during Newburgh OPEN Studios, September 25 + 26, and runs through November 15, 2021.
The exhibit theme for 2021, Keep In Touch, aims to find spaces of joy and community essential for collective healing in these times of isolation, public reckonings, and mourning. How can unexpected, in-person experiences with art connect us? How can we keep in touch with each other, deepen our friendships, and build new connections?
The exhibition is a satellite site for Terrain Biennial 2021, an initiative of Terrain Exhibitions, founded in 2013 by artist Sabina Ott. The biennial was created on a volunteer basis in the spirit of community building through free and accessible public art installations and events staged in residential neighborhoods across the US and worldwide. This is the second time Newburgh is participating.
