The Arad International Biennale of Contemporary Arts is a far-reaching project that aims to stimulate the development of contemporary plastic arts by creating an environment of dialogue and exchange of ideas among artists from all over the world. The project of the Biennale was started by a consortium made up of the “Terra dellArte” Association (Italy), “Ponte delle Arti s.r.l.”, the Arad County Council, the Arad City Hall, and the “Vasile Goldi” West University of Arad. The International Director of the Project is Mr Alfonso Caputo, plastic artist, President of the “Terra dellArte” Association and member of “Ponte delle Arti s.r.l.”.
The event will have its first edition in May 2005 and is coordinated by an International Artistic Committee.The main responsibilities of the Committee are to promote the project internationally and to select the artists that will take part in the Biennale.
The Biennale sets out to facilitate the meeting of the public both with established artists and with young artists just starting out in their careers in painting, photography or digital art.
The initiators of this project hope that, by rigour and perseverance, the Arad International Biennale of Contemporary Arts will become one of the most important vehicles for the promotion of contemporary arts in Europe.
