The Biennial Project LOVES LOVES LOVES “living these lives in art” as our close friend Jerry Saltz calls it. No joke, seriously, he actually said that. To us. About us. His exact words were “I truly envy you all for these lives lived in art…” We know it sounds just like something that we would make up, but in this case we did not have to. Seriously.
Anyway, back to the lives lived in art thing. The current project of these lives lived in art is our fifth edition of the Boston Biennial. We are getting to experience and promote SO MUCH EXCELLENT ART! We are thrilled to be able to share it with you and everyone out there.
We had planned on closing for submissions on this Wednesday February 14th, but because our inboxes are full of requests for extensions (we get it, we can never finish stuff on time either – we think it’s an artist thing), we have decided to extend the deadline to March 1st. Consider it our valentine to everyone who has been thinking about entering but has yet to get to it. So keep those amazing entries coming, we can’t wait to see your work!
