Message from Paul Paletti, Director:

Started in 1999 by four East Market Street galleries, the Louisville Photo Biennial has grown to encompass sixty photographic exhibits at fifty-three venues throughout Metro Louisville, southern Indiana, and central Kentucky. This amazing cooperative effort between galleries, museums, colleges, universities, and other cultural institutions celebrates the medium of photography through a rich variety of exhibits including fine art, documentary, design, historic and even every-day snap shot photography. We are pleased to present works by photographers of national and international fame, as well as our extremely talented local and regional photographers.

In addition, we also offer numerous educational opportunities through artist’s and curator’s talks, receptions, panel discussions, workshops, and other public events.

One very important aspect of the Louisville Photo Biennial is that almost all of the exhibits and activities may be enjoyed for free. Photography is the most widespread art form, one which we all practice and enjoy in one way or another. It is very important to our participating artists and organizations that the cultural richness provided by the Louisville Photo Biennial is accessible to everyone.

We are hard at work planning the 2019 Biennial, please watch this space, and our outlets on social media, for unfolding details.
