U.S. Participation at Venice and Cairo Biennale Exhibitions Benefits

Program Description

The U.S. Department of State supports the U.S. participation at select international art exhibitions called biennales. These programs help U.S. museums, school, galleries, or visual arts organizations participate in international art exhibitions. Currently, the State Department offers support for three art exhibitions: the Cairo International Art Exhibition, the Venice Architectural Biennale, and Venice Art Biennale. These programs were created to ensure that the excellence, vitality, and diversity of American arts are effectively showcased abroad.
