Chianciano Biennale 2022





Chianciano Biennale is organised by the Chianciano Art Museum. The exhibition showcases contemporary art selected from all around the world presented across a stunning network of 13 distinct art galleries and museum spaces.

The Chianciano Biennale is located in the heart of Tuscany, 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. 

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.

To participate in the Chianciano Biennale please visit the Artist Submission page on the Chianciano Biennale website.

F11: Digital Paintings for Full Screen




Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection invites artists to submit work for an upcoming virtual exhibition, “F11: Digital Paintings for Full Screen.” Submissions should be digital paintings on any theme intended to be viewed exclusively in a virtual space. "F11" refers to the function key that opens full screen viewing in most internet browsers. In the Covid era when many art spaces are closed or open at limited capacity, online exhibitions have become ubiquitous. Such exhibitions have utilized diverse platforms to display physical artwork that would normally be seen in-person at art fairs, museums and galleries. "F11" inverts this practice: It features art created to be viewed exclusively in a digital format and exhibited virtually.

A successful applicant's work will consider the technical strategies unique to the medium of digital painting that do not simply replicate traditional painting. These may include using customized tablet brushes, pre-made brush sets, choosing whether or not to “undo” a paint stroke, the use of layers, color palette options and the process of how these elements are applied to a digital canvas.

Selected artists will receive a $400 honorarium. Applicants must be 18 years or older at time of submission.

Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection is a non-profit, non-sectarian art museum and gallery on the campus of the Hebrew Home at Riverdale in the northwest Bronx in New York City. For more information about the Museum, visit

No email submissions. Please submit via linked form in this listing.

Call out: Both Sides Now with Fatima Al Qadiri


We’re looking for emerging female musicians, producers, visual artists and performance artists to take part in this exciting cross-artform residency led by composer, producer and conceptual artist Fatima Al Qadiri, developed in collaboration with curator and researcher Amal Khalaf.

Based at the People’s History Museum in Manchester across four days (9-12 July), you’ll collaborate to create new work inspired by the current exhibition Represent! Voices 100 Years Onwhich reflects on those who campaigned for better representation (most famously the suffragettes) and asks ‘How far have we really come in 100 years?’ 

The residency will culminate in a live showcase performance as part of ‘Radical Lates’ at the museum on Thursday 12 July.

This opportunity is aimed at musicians, producers or artists at the beginning of their career who are looking to develop their creative practice – and would benefit from working alongside experienced and established artists.

“The works of the greatest artists in contemporary times are effectively large-scale collaborative works. Glance at the credits of any major album, solo exhibition or film and you’ll see that timelessness is seldom a solo pursuit. The objective of this residency is to work together with artists to leave the self behind and be open to the possibilities that occur when working collaboratively.” – Fatima Al Qadiri

To apply you must be:

  • 18+
  • Female, or identify as female (we use an inclusive definition of ‘women’ and ‘female’, welcoming participants who may identify as non-binary, cis-gendered, or trans)
