1 December 2022

Florence Biennale, Art Market Magazine and Lens Magazine invite you to apply for the International Open Call Competition, which is aimed at identifying images that will be used for the integrated communication of the XIV Florence Biennale, which will be held from 14 to 22 October 2023 at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence.


The artists and photographers participating in the contest are invited to interpret the theme of the XIV Florence Biennale: I AM YOU | Individual and Collective Identities in Contemporary Art and Design and apply for the International Open Call Competition.

The works of the contest winners (1 artist and 1 photographer) will be used for the integrated communication of the event (mass media, internet, outdoor advertising, etc.) and exhibited in a dedicated space within the XIV Florence Biennale, while the works of the finalists (10 artists and 10 photographers) will be projected in rotation within the same space. The winners will also receive the Guests of Honour recognition during the event.
