Commuter Biennial is a Knight funded public art exhibition taking place throughout Miami-Dade County from July through October 2019. This exhibition aims to highlight commuter experiences of the Miami metro area by activating unconventional and underutilized locations, bringing attention to marginal, yet recognizable places in the suburban landscape. In activating these areas, the biennial seeks to redefine the places we consider home, underscoring the character and quality of neighborhoods. The Biennial seeks to democratize access to art through a series of artistic commissions across a wide range of styles and mediums that intersect high and low concepts and modalities.
Commuter Biennial is made possible with the generous support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through a Knight Arts Challenge grant, with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and Cultural Affairs Council, and the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners. Commuter Biennial is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. The exhibition is organized by the Gables Hispanic Cultural Foundation with the support of the Miami Foundation.
