This exhibition celebrates the contemporary work of Alaska artists. The Anchorage Museum’s juried exhibitions (All Alaska Juried Exhibition and Earth, Fire & Fibre) began more than 30 years ago to encourage the creation of new works by Alaska artists in all media. With the “All Alaska Biennial,” artists explore the authentic North, its people, materials and landscapes, through a variety of interpretations. The guest juror is Jen Budney, an independent writer and curator who has held positions with the Mendel Art Gallery, Kamloops Art Gallery, Canada Council for the Arts, Gallery 101, and Flash Art International.
All Alaska Biennial is funded in part by a grant from the Alaska State Council on the Arts; the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; the Anchorage Museum Association; and the Municipality of Anchorage.
