Alaska Artists Invited to Apply for Upcoming Anchorage Museum Exhibition

Monday, July 03, 2017

The Anchorage Museum is accepting submissions for the All-Alaska Biennial 2018 exhibition, featuring contemporary work by Alaska artists. Submissions are accepted through through 11 p.m. on Friday, June 15, 2018. The exhibition will be on view at the Anchorage Museum from Nov. 2, 2018, through March 3, 2019, after which it will travel to other Alaska venues. 

This juried exhibition is a continuation of the Museum’s All-Alaska Juried and Earth, Fire & Fibre exhibitions, which began more than 30 years ago to encourage Alaska artists to create new works. The process is open to Alaska artists working in all media, including digital and new media.

Independent curator and writer Candice Hopkins will jury the exhibition. Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Hopkins is a citizen of Carcross/Tagish First Nation in Yukon, Canada. She recently served as a curator for the 2017 international contemporary art exhibition "documenta 14." Other curatorial positions she has held have been at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, National Gallery of Canada, Western Front Society, and Walter Phillips Gallery at Banff Centre. In 2015, she received the Hnatyshyn Foundation Award for Curatorial Excellence in Contemporary Art.

All-Alaska Biennial is funded, in part, by the Alaska State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
