CAN Triennial is a regionally focused exhibition featuring northeast Ohio artists, selected by an intergenerational and diverse curatorial team, and representing this moment in time, place, and history in Cleveland. Conceived in 2016, the inaugural CAN Triennial took place in 2018. The second CAN Triennial, initially scheduled in 2021, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

CAN TRIENNIAL: YOU ARE HERE

will take place July 8, 2022 — August 31, 2022 in more than a dozen venues around Cleveland, Ohio.

CAN Triennial: “You Are Here” is a multi-venue exhibition organized in collaboration with an intergenerational, diverse team of curators from a range of institutional affiliations. The curatorial team will assemble more than a dozen exhibitions that will, at times, examine place and location, and at other times skewer notions of culture and politics, and will also map to discussions around presence and loss. Together, these exhibitions will give us an experiential journey through the literal geography of our city, and the ever-complicated situational understandings of place, context, identity, and–ultimately action.
