The Idaho Triennial, organized every three years by the Boise Art Museum, is a juried exhibition bringing together exemplary works of art created by a broad selection of Idaho artists.
The exhibition, which opens March 8 and runs through July 19, features a number of artists with ties to Boise State University. They include Boise State faculty members Caroline Earley and Lily Martina Lee, and alumni Luma Jasim, Karl LeClair, John McMahon, Goran Fazil, Luma Jasim, Veiko Vladimir Valencia Pacheco (also adjunct faculty) and second-year graduate student Clementine Wright.
Twenty-three artists were selected for The 2020 Idaho Triennial. The museum will celebrate the selected artists during an exhibition opening celebration from 5:30-8 p.m. Friday, March 13. At 6 p.m., Kook-Anderson will make comments and executive director Melanie Fales will announce artist awards. Admission to the reception is free for museum members and $10 for non-members.
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 bachelor’s degree in art history and art practice from the University of California, Berkeley, and a master’s degree in curatorial practice from the California College of the Arts.
