"Amid/In WNY 2023" at Hallwalls
January 13, 2023 - February 24, 2023
From 2015 to 2017, Hallwalls presented a series of eight regional group exhibitions under the over-arching rubric of Amid/In Western New York, a coy allusion to a multi-venue biennial from the previous decade called Beyond/In Western New York. Where Beyond/In was anchored by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, helming a group of galleries, museums, and curators from Buffalo to Lewiston, Amid/In was decidedly low-fidelity. Humble curators poking their noses into over 200 artists' studios and exhibiting the work of 78 artists across all media. Five years after that final group exhibition, the project was revived with Amid/In WNY 2022 and continues this year with Amid/in WNY 2023.
