The 9th Northwest Biennial

Margie Livingston

The 9th Northwest Biennial
Tacoma, WA: Tacoma Art Museum, 2009

Tacoma Art Museum's Northwest Biennial considers recent developments and accomplishments by Northwest artists. The 9th Northwest Biennial will focus on the current aesthetic and conceptual concerns addressed by regional artists. Through an increasingly complex matrix of influences, Northwest artists adapt and shed ideas, media, and imagery to define themselves as artists while reinventing or restating the core notion of a Northwest artist. Because the concept of "regional art" continually collapses and rebuilds, the subtle shifts in the imagery, stylistic impulses, and conceptual foundations reveal how the region's artist community participates in the broad dialogue of contemporary art.

The exhibition is accompanied by a 108-page catalogue with essays by co-curators Rock Hushka, Tacoma Art Museum's Curator of Contemporary and Northwest Art, and Alison de Lima Greene, Curator of Contemporary Art and Special Projects at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and 71 full-color illustrations of work by participating artists. Selected artist included: Rick Araluce, Gala Bent, Michael Brophy, Jack Daws, Eric Elliott, Tannaz Farsi, Sarah Hood, Denzil Hurley, Linda Hutchins, Robert C. Jones, Michael Kenna, Doug Keyes, Isaac Layman, Zhi Lin, Micki Lippe, Margie Livingston, Victor Maldonado, Debora Moore, Susan Robb, Stephanie Robison, Ross Sawyers, Susan Seubert, Chang-Ae Song, W.
