701 CCA S.C. Biennial ’23 to feature 24 #SCArtists

  • Part I: Nov. 18-Dec. 30, 2023
  • Part II: Jan. 12-Feb. 25, 2023

701 Center for Contemporary Art announced yesterday that 24 #SCArtists will be featured in the 2023 edition of its S.C. Biennial, a juried, multimedia exhibition of “some of the best contemporary art produced statewide.”

The Biennial 2023 will be presented in two parts. The first is soon, in November, and the second comes after the calendar turns in January. Part I will begin with a reception on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 6-8 p.m. and remain on view through Dec. 30. Visitors can view it Thursday-Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

Acceptance to the 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2023 was based on a competitive selection process. Contemporary artists living in South Carolina were invited via a public call to submit both images of their recent artwork and documentation of their career to 701 CCA.

An independent jury of three art professionals reviewed all submissions, selecting 24 artists out of a total of about 114 applications. The jurors were Lauren Jackson Harris, an independent curator and fine art management professional; Bob Monk, director of Gagosian Gallery NYC + LA; and Aaron Levi Garvey, chief curator of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.
