Mr. Fifield is also the Boston CyberArts Festival Director. (Photo by Roger Farrington) More than 1,100 people attended the opening of "The 2010 DeCordova Biennial" of New England artists at the DeCordova Sculpture Park + Museum in Lincoln. The Biennial is a survey exhibition, focused on the quality and variety of work rather than any single theme. The exhibition high- lights artists from across New England who work in a range of media, including innovative performance pieces, video installations, sculpture, painting, and photography. The exhibition, which runs through April 1 I, offers a number of firsts: The first time an exhibition has taken over the whole mu- seum; the first time the ex- hibition, a descendant of the 20-year history of DeCordova Annual exhibitions, has been curated by a single cu- rator, DinaDeitsch; the most artists, seventeen, ever curated into an exhibition in the series; and the first time an artist will live in the Mu- seum, to name a few. DeCordova Director Dennis Kois, right, welcomes featured artist Laurel Sparks. (Photo by Roger Farrington) DeCordova is open Tues- day through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on selected Monday holidays. The Sculpture Park is open year-round during daylight hours.
