The Texas Biennial 13 has opened its doors for art submissions from now until February 28th. The event is scheduled for September 5th through November 9th and will be held at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Center.
Founded in 2005, this year marks the fifth of such events intended to showcase Texas art.
From the site:
For the first time in the project's history, in 2013 the curated group survey that is the central feature of the Biennial will be installed in a single venue and will represent all artists selected from the open call.
Brought to you by the people at Big Medium, the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division and the Texas Commission on the Arts, and a huge list of other supporters, the biennial will also have related events in Austin, Dallas, Houston and Marfa to coincide with the show.
