In the summer of 2023, ASSEMBLY will expand into North America’s first fashion and art biennial. The culmination of a five month curatorial intensive program partnering five artists with industry professionals to learn the ins and outs of exhibition making. ASSEMBLY will showcase more than 60 artists in over 10 exhibitions across Northwest Arkansas. Additionally, the month-long immersive experience from June 1-30 will include at least three retail pop-up shops highlighting local and regional designers collections, and nationally recognized brands. Within the framework of the biennial, events and celebrations commemorating Juneteenth and LGBTQ+ Pride will take place alongside Northwest Arkansas Fashion Week. Embedded within the event is a standard of diversity, equity, and inclusion that creates a tapestry of representation across its participants and audience.
