History of Terrain Exhibitions:
Founded in October 2011 by artist Sabina Ott and educator John Paulett, Terrain Exhibitions is a public exhibition space in Oak Park, IL. Terrain Exhibitions features interventions into the conventional landscape of a front yard. Contemporary artists are invited to create site-specific projects challenging the space between public and private, decoration and function, figure and ground.
Terrain Exhibitions differs from many other alternative art platforms in that the artworks are accessible 24 hours a day, year-round. Visitors, neighbors, teachers, school children, and their parents are exposed to challenging contemporary art, offering the experience of discovery and surprise to the community. Terrain Exhibitions exhibits work that expands the audience of an artwork and the function of the front yard.
