About the New Wight Biennial

Founded in 1997 by professor and artist Mary Kelly, then chair of the UCLA Department of Art, the Wight Biennial is curated and produced by a committee of graduate students in the art department. The objective of the show is to exhibit this specific group of emerging artists as well as foster an investigative exchange between graduate programs at UCLA and other institutions.

The exhibition program of the New Wight Gallery is made possible by the generous support of Dallas Price-Van Breda.
