The Terrain Biennial is an international exhibition of site-specific art made for front yards, balconies, and porches. Centered in the historic village of Oak Park, IL, the 2019 Biennial with kick-off on Saturday, October 5th with a block party in Oak Park, IL and run until November 15th. Neighborhoods throughout Chicagoland will host performances, film screenings and other events in conjunction with the festival. A map of all locations and the dates of the openings for each neighborhood will be posted to www.terrainexhibitions.com.

Founded in October of 2011 by artist Sabina Ott and Author John Paulett, Terrain Exhibitions and the Terrain Biennial repurpose private spaces such as front yards, porches, or windows, turning them into public spaces in order to foster dialogue between neighbors and provide opportunities for artist and viewers alike to experience new perspectives. The projects at the 3rd Terrain Biennial will range from sculptural installations to time-based performances to public interventions.

For the 4th Terrain Biennial, Evanston artists have organized nineteen host locations on a mostly walkable route, along Wesley and Florence between Emerson and Dempster, and then continuing to sites on Central Avenue and . Eighteen homes and the Evanston Art Center will host the work of nineteen artists on the front yard, porch, or facade.
