Multiple-curator biennials are really having a moment! This year’s just-closed Gwangju Biennale had six artistic directors. Next year’s Whitney Biennial will have three. The upcoming Carnegie has three. And now the 2013 Texas Biennial will apparently have no fewer than 13 (or 14, depending on how you want to count a collaborative pair). The news was reported by D Magazine, which we found out about via Artforum.
Those curators are as follows:
— Bill Arning, director of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston
— René Paul Barilleaux, chief curator of the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, Texas
— Christian Gerstheimer, curator of the El Paso Museum of Art in Texas
— K8 Hardy, New York–based artist
— The team of Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler, artists and faculty at Bard College and the University of Texas at Austin
— Annette Lawrence, artist and professor at the University of North Texas
— David Pagel, art critic and associate professor at Claremont Graduate University in California
— Bárbara Perea, Mexico City–based curator
— Christina Rees, curator of the Texas Christian University in Fort Worth
— Dario Robleto, artist based in Houston
— Noah Simblist, associate professor of art at the Southern Methodist University, Meadows School of the Arts, Dallas
— Jeremy Strick, director of the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas
— Clint Willour, curator of the Galveston Arts Center in Texas
The exhibition will include programming in Austin, Dallas, Marfa and San Antonio. Lots to see! Book your tickets for Sept. 5 through Nov. 9.
