The Chianciano Biennale is a contemporary art exhibition organised by the Chianciano Art Museum located in the heart of Tuscany. The Chianciano Biennale provides an unmissable opportunity for artists to further their career in an international setting; showcased across a network of 13 distinct art galleries and museum spaces. The Chianciano Biennale is taking place from Saturday 6th - Sunday 28th August 2022. The Chianciano Art Museum has been showcasing thousands of international artworks for over a decade, making this 2022 exhibition the 7th edition of the Biennale. Since this birthdate of 2009, the Chianciano Biennale has had a universal appeal and is recognised for their cultural connections by critics, artists and collectors alike. The Chianciano Biennale is a part of a network comprising the thirteen Clancianum Galleries and the Art Museum in the town of Chianciano, all coordinated by Gagliardi Gallery. During the 2022 Biennale, artists and attendees alike will roam through the galleries to soak up the permanent collections, the Biennale and other summer exhibitions on display in Chianciano. The cluster of galleries are located up on the hill of the Medieval Old Town, falling back on stretches of the rich green and gold landscape that Tuscany breathes. Encompassing over 100 artists and artworks, the Chianciano Biennale artworks will be meticulously hung across a cluster of the Clancianum Galleries and the Art Museum. The remaining walls of the Clancianum Galleries and the Art Museum will glow with a showcasing of seven other exhibitions ranging from Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec at the Savoy Gallery to Giorgio Armani at the Chelsea Gallery. The full list of exhibitions and their details can be found on the Chianciano Biennale website. There are no submission requirements for the Chianciano Biennale, the applications are open to all living artists without discrimination and wholly on the basis of the artwork itself. Great art has never been limited to established powers, therefore our application process is the same- no requirements, just submit the artwork you feel best represents you. The selection process is rigorous and allows critics and collectors to admire works of excellent quality both in the Art Museum and in the Clancianum Galleries, where contemporary art creates a magnificent contrast with the historic architecture of the medieval town. To truly honour the dynamic talent of contemporary artists, the Chianciano Biennale offers sixteen awards. A grand total of €2500 will be prized to the artist with the judged best work. Others include being exhibited at the prestigious London Art Biennale 2023, Chianciano Biennale’s sister exhibition, or an artist critique written by the organisation International Confederation of Art Critics. Longevity and influence are married at the Chianciano Biennale and provide an unmissable platform for artists to further their career in an international setting. The hundreds of attendees are made up of critics, international artists, collectors and above all, a new audience and atmosphere to let your artworks expand in.
