California artist Cris Orfescu will represent the US at the 5th International Biennale of Contemporary Art, in December 2005, in Florence, Italy.
The Florence Biennale is world's most comprehensive exhibition of contemporary art. This exhibition is defined as a wonderful Biennale, with 890 artists from 72 nations participating despite their differences of language and faith, and found a common language in art to communicate their cultural values illustrating Kofi Annan's statement: "Artists have a special role to play in the global struggle for peace. At their best, artists speak not only to people; they speak for them. Art is a weapon against ignorance and hatred and an agent of public awareness… Art opens new doors for learning, understanding, and peace among people and nations." The competition committee estimated the last Biennale’s audience to be around 40,000 attendees. Participation in the Biennale is by nomination only and the artists are selected solely on the basis of the merit of their works, with no prejudices as to style, theme or artistic movement.
