The Chianciano Biennale 2013 was an opportunity to see the artworks of talented artists that are selected from all around the world. Already in the 2011 edition, the represented nations ranged from Chile to India, Australia to Germany and from the USA to the Philippines. The exhibition is staged over approximately 3000 square meters of the Museum and gathers some of the best established as well as emerging talents in the world.
The Chianciano Art Museum has had significant exposure on national and international newspapers and magazines during the Chianciano Biennale 2013 and was praised by the New York Times. The Biennale 2013 hosted the works of 120 artists selected from 30 nations.
The brain of the Chianciano Biennale is Maria Gagliardi, also co-founder of the World Biennial in London and owner of the well-known gallery on the Kings Road in London, functioning successfully for 35 years.
"Scientific conferences, lectures, concerts and presentations were held every day, as well as loose social meetings. The most important was that you can meet and talk with artists from all over the world - from USA, Australia, Norway and even from the United Arab Emirates, learn their art and cultural specificity. It turned out the universal language of art is approaching absolutely everyone. Participation in such events is really fantastic artistic experience." - summarized Ryszard Miłek.
The exhibition had a very positive feedback in press reviews of the leading world daily journals, like "New York Times" and "Washington Post".
The Chianciano Museum of Art is a Museum in the centre of the thermal Town of Chianciano Terme, Tuscany, with collections of both contemporary and ancient art. The Chianciano Biennale is a highlight of the Museum’s calendar, held entirely in the Museum, with participants from all over the world.
