CALL FOR ENTRIES 2019 WISCONSIN TRIENNIAL

October 19, 2019–February 16, 2020

MADISON, WI--In the fall of 2019, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art will present the Wisconsin Triennial, a survey of contemporary Wisconsin art. Artists from across the state are invited to apply to this exhibition, to be held October 19, 2019 through February 16, 2020.

As in previous years, the 2019 Triennial will be a juried exhibition selected and organized by MMoCA’s curatorial staff. Each of the selected artists will be represented by a single work or a small group of works.

The Triennial reflects current directions in Wisconsin’s visual arts scene. The exhibition will be installed in the museum’s main galleries, State Street Gallery, and Imprint Gallery; other spaces, such as the lobby and Rooftop Sculpture Garden, may be utilized as well. MMoCA will also produce an illustrated publication documenting the exhibition.

Artists who are full-time residents of the state of Wisconsin are eligible to submit examples of artworks created in the last three years. The deadline for applications is February 15, 2019. Original work in all media will be considered. Artists may download entry information from the museum’s website at mmoca.org/2019-wisconsin-triennial.

For additional information, call the museum at 608.257.0158.
