The Biennial Project is overjoyed to make known an open call to artists worldwide for ArtVenice Biennale 3 - an online juried competition as well as a large screen digital presentation being held in Venice, Italy during the Opening Week of The Venice Biennale 56!!
This location of the gorgeous and centrally-located gallery space where Art Venice Biennale 3 will take place is in the centre of Castello, the Venecian neighborhood just between Giardini Biennale and Arsenale Biennale – the absolutely “it” location during the Venice Biennale. The Giardini and Arsenale are the two most important venues at The Venice Biennale, which is the most important art event in the entire world that only happens every two years.
If your work is selected for inclusion in ArtVenice Biennale 3 it will also be shown on our website and in a blog posting reaching over 6,000 very important people of influence in the international art world (mondo artistico internazionale). Best of all your art will be presented for one night as part of a digital display at The Biennial Project’s extravagant, VIP Gala event in Venice, Italy during the opening week of The Venice Biennale 56. That’s La Biennale di Venezia for you international folk.
In addition, the artist who is bestowed the title of Grand Prizewinner will have a solo gallery show on our website, and a solo blog posting of 15 pieces or his/her magnificenza work to our on-line audience of over 6,000 (and growing) art lovers.
The theme for Art Venice Biennale 3 is Bienale in a Biennale (Biennale in un Biennale). In this fast paced, technology clogged world most people view a lot of everything but don’t examine the depth of anything. We meet people but don’t get to know the real the’, we read articles but don’t contemplate the deepest meaning, and we gobble down lasagna but don’t take the time to savor the flavor of each individual yummy ingredient’. We all know the best of things are founc deep in the middle of lots of everything. Well, our Biennale will be smack in the middle of more art then you can ever possibly contemplate. Biennale in a Biennale will be centrally located in a large gallery space opening onto Via Garibaldi, and seen by the highest level international curators, collectors and gallerists. It will actually be a Biennale in a Biennale!! A big yummy Biennale and Lasagna sandwich.
Open to all artists. Open to all media, including 2-D, 3-D, sculpture, photography, performance, video, installation mixed media, and art from a kit.
