How to Terrain

The model of Terrain developed by Sabina Ott is one of generosity, dialogue and creativity. Terrain Exhibitions has developed this page as a guide for hosts and artists alike.

Private made public

Terrain Exhibitions makes private space public. Terrain Biennial projects should be visible from the public way 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If your project includes some kind of durational aspect then please indicate this in the information provided at the site.

Make space for creativity

Hosts should not show their own work at their own space. Terrain Exhibitions is founded on a spirit of generosity where hosts give their space over to other artists. Often times hosts do participate as artists in the Terrain Biennial and if you need to find a host please get in touch and we can help facilitate this.

Be safe

Hosts and artists work together to produce a project that is ambitious and safe. Artworks are constructed and installed to withstand inclement weather conditions for the locations they are in. Please be mindful of local ordinances and where necessary consult professional help.
