The Cornell University Council for the Arts (CCA) announces the fifth Cornell Biennial, featuring artworks, installations, and performances addressing the curatorial theme “Futurities, Uncertain.” Curated by Timothy Murray, CCA Director, the 2022 Cornell Biennial stages an artistic call and response to counter singular utopic models, colonial visions, and socio-cultural sameness. Imagining how artistic futurities might generate cultural transformation in its plenitude, an array of interdisciplinary artistic projects will animate the future differently.
The biennial features 23 invitational artists and collectives from 11 countries who join 17 Cornell-based projects to address crucial questions regarding race and social justice, global warming, artistic representation, robotics, sustainable ecology and architecture, migration, and labor. The performances and artworks will be rotated across Cornell’s campuses in Ithaca and NYC Cornell Tech from July through December.
Cornell will celebrate the biennial with a September weekend of exciting public events. On the 15th and 16th, enjoy exhibition openings and the opportunity to meet many of the artists during guided walking tours at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Arts Quad, Sibley Hall, Human Ecology Building, and Agricultural Quad.
After dark on the 16th and 17th, gather outside the Johnson Museum for Mendi & Keith Obadike’s evening performance of sound and light. A full day of artist panels on the 17th will include a bioart performance by Paul Vanouse.
