The 2012 Boston Biennial - Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art

The 2012 Boston Biennial 
Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art
Presented by The Biennial Project
at The Gallery at Spencer Lofts 

December 2012

The theme of The Boston Biennial 2012 is Illuminating Worlds. 

We The Biennial Project have light which we pass onto others (that's you). As The Biennial Project's own light shines, we give other people permission to do the same. Our spotlight spills over to all around us and we want the world to see you through us.

Did you ever turn on the kitchen lights and watch the roaches scatter in all directions. Things lurk in the dark and when the lights go on shit gets exposed. Whether you worship the sun or think Jesus is the Son of God, we all know we can't live in the dark. Expose your inner self to the world around us. 

Remember we are only as sick as our secrets.

Also don't be beholden to the theme. We just needed to come up something that sounded important.
