Following the People’s Biennial 2010, which focused attention on underrepresented artists from five diverse non-art center geographical regions in the United States (Portland, Oregon; Rapid City, South Dakota; Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Haverford, Pennsylvania), the People’s Biennial 2014 will attempt again to showcase artwork that might otherwise not be shown in a museum context.

For the second iteration of this exhibition series the curators have asked 17 recognized artists based in a wide set of locations around the United States to connect and collaborate with creative individuals they personally know who are not part of the art world in any way. These solo presentations will each be displayed in free-standing structures within the refurbished Woodward Gallery of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit creating a creative community of the unknown, overlooked surprising.
