Biennial of the Americas


Now? now!


july 14-August 30, 2015

Now? NOW!, is the central exhibition of the 2015 Biennial of the Americas presented in collaboration with MCA Denver, featuring over 30 artists from across the Western Hemisphere who question, transform and celebrate our complex now. Artists engage imaginatively with the major concerns of the present. Some react to issues in a particular context, like political and economic reforms in Mexico and protests in response to police killings in the US, while others respond to more pervasive features of our time, like the potentials and pitfalls of technology and migration. The exhibition is a spark for questioning and celebrating this particular moment – unsettled, fast-changing, full of potential – in the long history of the Americas.

Now? NOW! is curated by Lauren A. Wright, Artistic Director and Curator, Biennial of the Americas, with Anya Pantuyeva, Curatorial Assistant
