CAN Triennial Artists for Site-Specific Installations Announced


CAN Triennial curators received more than 500 applications for the exhibition and its site-specific installations. At a time when the eyes of the art world are on Cleveland, CAN Triennial is proud to put the spotlight on Cleveland Art.

Profound thanks to William Busta, Angelica Pozo, Hilary Gent, and Curlee Raven Holton whose wisdom and range of perspectives have guided this process.

The list includes familiar names who have been defining forces on the region’s art scene for years, as well as artists who are much less known. It represents an enormous range of backgrounds, perspectives and media, just like Cleveland. We know you will want to see their new work and celebrate with them and us when CAN Triennial offers its preview party Friday July 6, and its free public opening Saturday, July 7. Watch this space for more details and announcements in the coming days.

The opinions expressed on CAN Blog are those of the individual writers. Art is somewhat subjective. Well, somewhat. But yes, everybody's a critic.
