About the 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2013
The 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2013 is a survey exhibition of work by contemporary South Carolina artists. The exhibition will be held at 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia. The 701 CCA S.C. Biennial 2013 will be presented in two parts with openings in September and November.
The goals of the Biennial exhibition are to provide a venue to showcase recent work reflecting local, regional and national trends and issues influencing contemporary artists living and working in South Carolina and to increase awareness and appreciation of the artistic contributions and accomplishments of the state’s visual artists. The exhibition draws on the breadth of the visual arts community by providing a multi-media juried statewide exhibition opportunity every two years.
Artists working in all media and styles were encouraged to apply in order to reflect the stylistic and cultural diversity of art produced in the state. Artists had to be a current resident of South Carolina.
An exhibition catalogue will be produced to document the exhibition.
