Biennial exhibits most commonly are used within the art world to describe exhibits that occur every other year. The first exhibit in 1895 was held in Venice, Italy and is still considered the most important. Biennial exhibits are now held throughout the world, most often celebrating contemporary art. The focus of the art is frequently on current cultural events that influence the perception of our everyday life. The 2015 Rogue Valley Biennial Exhibition features work that presents interpretations of our world today or a commentary on contemporary issues. This may include artist’s expression of current events, art movements, or political issues.
