Every two years since 1996, the Art Gallery of Alberta has presented the Alberta Biennial, hosting incredible displays of contemporary art from across the province.
In 2017 the Alberta Biennial of Contemporary art will celebrate its 10th year. The exhibition is jointly organized and co-presented by The Art Gallery of Alberta and The Banff Centre’s Walter Philips Gallery, and curated by Kristy Trinier and Peta Rake.
Opening in two parts, the exhibit will first introduce itself on September 22, 2017 at the Walter Phillips Gallery and at the Art Gallery of Alberta and will include public programming at both sites throughout the exhibition.
