Academiae Biennale

CONCEPT
Contemporary visual art is one of the major forms of expression that is putting persons and populations from all over the world in communication using universal signs and messages that exceed the barriers of language, culture, and history. The artists are the architects of this revolution, they are the intellectual force that generates questions, thoughts, interpretations, and propose visions. Academiae Biennial aims to give voice to young artists from all over the world, to unite their thoughts in an exceptionally evocative location that becomes an artistic platform of powerful cultural and social content. A project that gives life to an international event confirming the vocation toward building bridges between cultures and populations in our territory.
