The Alaska Biennial is a survey of contemporary art in Alaska. Alaska Biennial comes at a time of unprecedented change across the globe. Artists reflect the world around them, and some of the work in this exhibition addresses the pandemic and ideas of isolation, racism and decolonization, as well as the surrounding and changing natural environment.
The artworks and artists come from across the state and work across media. The Biennial has been organized by the Anchorage Museum under various titles and forms for more than three decades as a way to celebrate the work of Alaska artists and to encourage the creation of new works.
Alaska Biennial is organized by the Anchorage Museum with support from Alaska State Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, the Municipality of Anchorage, Anchorage Museum Association and Anchorage Museum Foundation Alaska Airlines Silver Anniversary Fund.
