The 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2013 is a survey exhibition of work by contemporary South Carolina artists. The Biennial is an initiative of 701 CCA and was first held in 2011. The goals of the Biennial exhibition are to provide a venue to showcase recent work reflecting local, regional and national trends and issues influencing contemporary artists living and working in South Carolina and to increase awareness and appreciation of the artistic contributions and accomplishments of the state’s visual artists. The exhibition draws on the breadth of the visual arts community by providing a multi-media juried statewide exhibition opportunity every two years.

Artists working in all media and styles were encouraged to apply in order to reflect the stylistic and cultural diversity of art produced in the state. Artists had to be a current resident of South Carolina.

An exhibition catalogue will be produced to document the exhibition.
