In order to keep AURORA alive and to keep the Biennial free and open to the public, we rely on the support of generous donations. We deeply appreciate your donations, all of which go toward operational and production costs, including artist fees (we strongly believe in paying artists for their work). AURORA thanks you for your continous support!
Under the theme of ‘Future Worlds,’ the fifth edition of the AURORA Biennial—one of the world’s largest free, technology-based art exhibitions—invited artists and visitors to imagine a series of possible futures throughout the Dallas cityscape. On November 3, 2018, a series of artistic propositions engaged the public and urged audiences to think about the direction our world might take and actively participate in its creation.
We were excited to introduce this new theme as well as a new curatorial team and the new location of Downtown Dallas for the 2018 AURORA Biennial, which was described by Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings as “a cornerstone event for the arts in North Texas.”
