attempt at a real Texas Biennial in a dozen years
(Nobody's ever done a second bi.)
opened across central Austin in early March, 2005
with many peculiarities and
odd statistics, including no jurors from Dallas
or Fort Worth or Denton, 36 accepted
artists selected by 15 jurors
with a total of 12 votes,
and a disproportionate number of Austin artists
selected by a heavily Austin weighted jury
from the 670 artists
entering statewide from 99 Texas
cities — and
plenty of amazing new work by Texas artists.

Rainey Knudson, founder and editor of Glass
Tire summed up DARts coverage of this event in an all-cap “WOW!” and
wanted to (and eventually did) publish it on their site, so a considerably
rewritten version of these stories is there. I'd
link to it, but they edited (and rewrote it) so extensively, I cannot
really recommend that version. Ours is much better.
