2021 edition: 1-31 October – Menton, Palace des Ambassadeurs


The BACS (Biennale d’Art Contemporain Sacré) is an affiliate of the Mirabile Dictu – International Catholic Film Festival

Both have the purpose of inspiring Faith through Art in all its forms. 

The 2019 edition was a huge success: 214 artists from around the world exhibited, more than 4,000 visitors attended, many artists sold their works very well and some of them were selected for the Venice Biennale.

While we are preparing the 2021 edition, we’ve dedicated 2020 to the Artists in Residence operation.

Artists in Residence

The BACS will offer hospitality from May to October to Artists from all over the World.

If you wish to apply see the section ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE.


The Artists from all over the world are invited to submit photos and descriptions of their artworks compatible with the 2021 theme of our Biennale: “Art to Achieve Transcendence”. The photos can be sent to the following email address: contact@biennale-bacs.com
