After soliciting recommendations from colleagues across New England, museum curators Jennifer Gross, Chief Curator and Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs, and Sarah Montross, Associate Curator, reviewed portfolios and visited dozens of studios, exhibitions, and galleries, in order to select a group of artists whose work reflects the innovation, excellence, and vision of art-making in the region. The artists selected represent a broad range of experience and their work engages diverse aesthetic and social concerns. The Biennial is a mainstay of the deCordova’s programming and mission and exemplifies the Museum’s commitment to New England artists. DeCordova began hosting its Annual exhibitions in the late 1980s and inaugurated the Biennial format in 2010.

The 2016 deCordova Biennial is made possible in part by generous support from Amy and Jonathan Poorvu.
