ArtVenice Biennale 3


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.


Reproduction of Art Work

The Biennial Project reserves the right to reproduce submitted works for Biennial Project printed materials, advertisements, electronic media, internet, television, catalog, DVD, magazine, gallery shows and enjoyment in our own homes.  Copyright and other rights remain that of the artist.

Mission Statement

The Biennial Project is an artists’ collaborative whose goal is to explore the nature and understand the perception of biennials within the art world and, in so doing, to develop a collective body of work that will be exhibited in as many biennials as possible – especially the really cool ones.

Now how can turn down a shot at fame and fortune like this? You might get so rich you can have a wedding to a human rights lawyer from London at The Aman Canal Grande Hotel in Venice and wisp them back to your Villa on Lake Coumo.

The potential for exposure is enormous! You’ll be running with the big dogs, or Italian Greyhounds, here. Duh!! It’s a no brainier…we want you to enter! We want the world to see your creations. We want you to be celebrated and wealthy. You must enter!!!

You can be as happy as Amal Alamuddin, now Amal Clooney, the day she said I DO to an actor named George in an Italian civil ceremony at Palazzo Cavalli surrounded by family and friends including Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, Anna Wintour, Matt Damon, Bono, and Bill Murray.

Wild Things

A National Juried Exhibition

Arts Council of Southeast Missouri

Cape Girardeau, MO

Exhibition Dates: June 5 – 27, 2015

Deadline for Entries: April 7, 2015

If civilization is what separates humankind from the animal kingdom, the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri asks artists to cross that line and become uncivilized. Artists across the United States are invited to submit their works depicting the world’s Wild Things. From household pets to rainforest creatures to ocean dwellers, artwork must depict a member, real or imagined, of the animal kingdom.

Juror: Ruth Ann Reese is known for her surreal porcelain sculptures where animal forms merge with human figures and flora grafts to fauna. From these fantastic beings, psychological questions concerning the nature of identity naturally emerge. At present, she is a studio artist living in St. Louis, MO and the founder of Reese Gallery, where she curates exhibitions of other emerging and mid-career artists.
