The Terrain Biennial is an international exhibition of site-specific art made for front yards, balconies, and porches. Centered in the historic village of Oak Park, IL, the 2017 Biennial will open on Sunday, October 1st with a block party in Oak Park, IL and run until November 15th. Neighborhoods throughout Chicagoland will host performances, film screenings, and other events in conjunction with the festival. A map of all locations and the dates of the openings for each neighborhood will be posted to www.terrainexhibitions.com. This year, The Terrain Biennial is partnering with Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) as part of the 2017 “Year of Public Art” in Chicago. For details regarding the Year of Public Art visit cityofchicago.org/yopa.
Founded in October of 2011 by artist Sabina Ott and author John Paulett, Terrain Exhibitions and The Terrain Biennial repurposes private spaces such as front yards, porches, or windows, turning them into public spaces in order to foster dialogue between neighbors and provide opportunities for artists and viewers alike to experience new perspectives. The projects at the 3rd Terrain Biennial will range from sculptural installations to time-based performances to public interventions.
