BIG MEDIUM PROGRAMMING
The EAST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR is a self-guided tour which celebrates the rich wealth of talent of East Austin’s large and wildly diverse creative community. Since 2003, artists on the east side have been opening their doors for the now annual East Austin Studio Tour, and has grown to include nearly 500 artists participating in the 2012 EAST as artist studios, art spaces, and events. The 2013 EAST will be in November, and the call for 2013 will open up in summer 2013. Follow EAST here on facebook to keep on top of news and the call for artists.
Big Medium was excited to kick off the first annual WEST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR in May 2012. WEST covers a wide geographical area, and just as non-homogenous as Austin itself, the broad range of work reflects the eclectic breadth of artists working west of I35. WEST 2013 will take place in the spring (exact dates to be announced in mid-January), and the call for artists will open in mid-January 2013. Like its sister tour, WEST is an opportunity to explore artist studios, exhibition spaces, and take part in a multitude of diverse art events.

The TEXAS BIENNIAL is an independent survey of contemporary art in Texas, founded to provide an exhibition opportunity open to all artists living and working in the state. The 5th edition of the Texas Biennial will take place in the fall of 2013, with a range of exhibitions and other programming at venues in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Marfa, and San Antonio.
