The 2020 Idaho Triennial

March 8 – July 19, 2020

Organized every three years by the Boise Art Museum, The Idaho Triennial is a juried exhibition bringing together exemplary works of art created by a broad selection of Idaho artists. For more than 80 years, BAM has celebrated the creativity of artists living and working in Idaho, and the Museum’s series of biennial and triennial exhibitions has become a respected and treasured tradition.

The juror for The 2020 Idaho Triennial is Grace Kook-Anderson, the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Northwest Art at the Portland Art Museum. She formerly served as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Art in the School of Art + Design at Portland State University, and as the Curator of Contemporary Art at Laguna Art Museum in Laguna Beach, California. Kook-Anderson holds a dual BA in Art History and Art Practice from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MA in Curatorial Practice from the California College of the Arts. Twenty-three artists were selected for The 2020 Idaho Triennial.
