Providence Biennial for Contemporary Art
Provoking new ways of seeing,
thinking and engaging with
each other.

The mission of the Providence Biennial for Contemporary Art is to generate curated exhibitions of contemporary art in Rhode Island that expose individuals and communities to transformative experiences, provoking new ways of seeing, thinking and engaging with each other. As an effort to strengthen curatorial practices, experienced board members have mentored emerging curators and artists in realizing ambitious, creatively conceived, frequently social and environmental justice themed exhibitions, installations or interventions.

Cultivating a Transformative Experiment


The core program proceeds from understanding art’s capacity to disrupt and transform conventions of perception and experience. Through close mentoring, opportunities are developed for the realization of distinctive and provocative curated projects. The guided collaboration identifies a network of resources to help curators initiate creative and strategic partnerships, while aligning with the context of varied host venues—whether institutional, nascent, or alternative spaces.

A sincerest thank you to our 2023 Sponsors and Partners
