New England Triennial 2022

The Trustees of Reservations announces the 25 artists to be featured in the New England Triennial 2022 exhibition.

The New England Triennial 2022 features the work of a diverse and ambitious group of artists who are based across the six states of the Northeast – Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The exhibition will foreground the recent creative output of twenty-five artists, registering the creativity and resilience of those who have been working during these challenging and transformational times. The exhibition will reveal tendencies in contemporary art today, including ancestral knowledge and kinship, material transmutation, and intimate attachments to the natural world. Featuring a wide range of artistic mediums, the Triennial will include painting, sculpture, fiber arts, ceramics, print, installation, video, and performance.

Since 1989, the New England Triennial (formerly known as the deCordova New England Biennial) has been a mainstay of deCordova’s programming and mission, exemplifying the museum’s commitment to the region’s contemporary art. For the first time, this upcoming cycle will span two museum venues, deCordova and Fruitlands, expanding the platform for this highly-anticipated survey of artmaking in New England.
