SAIC Professor Michelle Grabner and Jens Hoffman, a curator and writer at the Jewish Museum in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detriot, have been named artistic directors of the new Cleveland Triennial, which will make its debut in 2018. The inaugural exhibition, An American City, will feature more than 50 international artists. Grabner co-curated the 2014 Whitney Biennial and most recently helped organize the 2016 Portland Biennial. The announcement of the triennial was much-discussed across several publications, including the New York Times, the Observer, Artnet, and Artforum.
The triennial is scheduled for July 7–September 30, 2018.
