The Every Woman Biennial Serenades New York City and Los Angeles with an All-Women Art Biennial
The 2019 Biennial: "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" comes as a response to the awakening representation of women artists. This is the third iteration of Christine Finley’s acclaimed women’s art exhibition. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” is a rally cry for self identifying women artists to cross-pollinate with each other across a wide variety of mediums, generations, as well as racial and ethnic backgrounds. The aim of bringing together so many creative voices is to sing a collective song that celebrates the contributions of female artists and marks a moment in our communal trajectory. The Every Woman Biennial is committed to creating not only an exhibition, but a new consciousness in the world of art which favors encouragement, connection, inspiration and love.
The Every Woman Biennial, formerly The Whitney Houston Biennial, debuted in 2014 with 86 artists as a single day event and grew to a two-week event featuring 195 artists in 2017. In 2019 the WHB will be expanding from New York to include Los Angeles. The general framework of the exhibit consists of visual artists shown “salon style” including but not limited to: painting, photography, installation, sculpture, video art, textile, multimedia, performance, dance, musical acts, poetry readings, theater presentations, and a film festival.
