Florence Biennale: October at the Fortezza da Basso

The event for lovers of contemporary art and craftsmanship.

XIV Florence Biennale - 14th-22nd October 

The theme of the event - "I Am You. Individual and Collective Identities in Contemporary Art and Design" - focuses on the concepts of individual and collective identities, in their multiple philosophical, psychological, sociological and cultural meanings; a theme that has evidently proven to be very stimulating as over 600 artists and designers from all five continents have already signed up for this edition of the Florence Biennale.

The 14th Florence Biennale will also offer other spaces dedicated to guests of honor: two of them-Bulgarian photographer Viktoria Andreeva and French digital artist Jean-Michel Bihorel-will be the preserve of the winners of the International Open Call Competition.

Also noteworthy is the participation of a collective of 10 Maori artists (project “T?h? - A Legacy of People and Place”), of an Australian aboriginal artist, of a collective of Argentine artists, led by the master Ricardo Juarez, the performance by the Karakorum group (contemporary dance) and by Lynn Guo and Viola Panik on the theme of body shaming, with an invitation to the public to write - on Viola's body - a word that expresses her discomfort.
