The 2017 Biennial presents the best in contemporary art from Southern Illinois. The exhibition provides a barometer of how our artists in the region are critically and aesthetically responding to their worlds. The artworks in the exhibition portray a wide range of topics featuring interpersonal relationships, the family, and the individual. Other topics examined by the artists include: politics, energy, weather, climate change, nature, religion, spirituality, labor, and urban life. There is throughout all the artworks, a reflexive understanding of media and its expressive qualities.
