Aurora Biennial

2023 marks AURORA’s fifth edition of its expansive, outdoor Biennial. Dozens of large-scale and innovative technology-based artworks are set to be presented by leading regional, national, and international artists across an exciting urban footprint centered on the iconic I.M. Pei-designed Dallas City Hall and the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center. This convergence of art, architecture, and technology continues to give prominence to Dallas’ standing as an international contemporary art destination.   

Our 2023 AURORA Biennial will present a diverse lineup of contemporary artists selected by two prestigious curators hailing from New York City and Mexico City. Each curator brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in institution-level public art and international exhibitions, and has previously worked with a spectrum of emerging to established contemporary artists.

Since its foundation, the AURORA Biennial exhibitions have commissioned and presented over 280 regional and international artists and attracted more than 300,000 visitors. Continuing to expand its impact as well as our collective ideas of the future, AURORA aims to be North America’s largest art and technology organization that generates meaningful, creative exchanges between the artists and the public realm.            

Our mission is to inspire a more accessible future of art and technology by supporting the voices of today’s artists and connecting diverse communities through transformative public art experiences.
