2010 Idaho Triennial
Organized every three years, the Idaho Triennial is a juried exhibition bringing together exemplary works of art created by a broad selection of Idaho artists. This year artists were asked to respond to the theme: sustain + expand. Literally, figuratively or conceptually, Idaho artists were encouraged to consider the various definitions of these words, and the ways in which their works bring a local and/or regional perspective to global issues, artistic philosophies and creative techniques.
As a new educational component, BAM will produce Cell Phone Audio Guides for the exhibition, encouraging viewers to access information about the artworks on their cell phones. Exhibiting artists will record the segments that pertain to their works, providing an added link between the artists and BAM visitors.
Supported in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies
