Curatorial Projects > Terrain Biennial 2019

Terrain Exhibitions re-purposes private spaces such as front yards, porches, or windows and turns them into public spaces to foster dialogue between neighbors and provide opportunities for artists and viewers alike to experience new perspectives. Terrain Exhibitions is a 501c3 Not for Profit organization established in the State of Illinois. Founded in Oak Park Illinois by artist Sabina Ott, the "Terrain Biennial" has produced editions in 2013, 2015 and 2017.

In 2019, I acted as a curator for my block in Oak Park, IL. I hosted an artist in my front window, a neighbor hosted my work, and I connected three other neighbors with local artists. There is an elementary school at the end of the block, so there was a huge diverse audience for all of this work that interfaced with each residence in very different ways.
