2023 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 2021 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 next edition, we’ve dedicated 2022 to the Artists in Residence operation.


BACS offers hospitality to 2 to 4 artists in even years (when the Biennale is not held).

The 2024 program is now open. The selection will be completed before 31st of December 2023 ad the happy winners will be informed before 31st of January 2024.


The Artists from all over the world are invited to submit photos and descriptions of their artworks for the 2023 Edition of the Biennale.
The photos can be sent to the following email address:
