Venue: Downtown Louisville
Start Date: Sep 9th, 2021
End Date: Nov 14th, 2021
The Louisville Photo Biennial takes place this year from September 9, 2021 through November 14, 2021, throughout Louisville Metro, Southern Indiana, and Central Kentucky. Our photography exhibitions – spanning traditional to contemporary, local to global – are mounted at museums, galleries universities, and cultural institutions. The Biennial also presents accompanying workshops, public lectures and panel discussions to stimulate learning and expand visual literacy.Since photography is the most widespread art form, our goal is to educate via meaningful dialogue and to help bridge understanding in our diverse world through this dynamic medium.
This year, we have all been affected by the extraordinary circumstances of the pandemic. As a result, we will make the exhibits, presentations and activities of the Louisville Photo Biennial available virtually, as well as in-person, to the greatest extent possible.
One very important aspect of the Louisville Photo Biennial is that almost all of the exhibits and activities may be enjoyed for free, both in-person and virtually. It is very important to our participating artists and organizations that the cultural richness provided by the Louisville Photo Biennial is accessible to everyone.
