Eligibility:

LUBICA - Lucca Biennale Cartasia is the most important event celebrating Paper as an artistic and architectural means worldwide. It takes place every two years in the city of Lucca, Tuscany. Founded in 2004, LUBICA made a pledge to promote tradition, culture, sustainability, and innovation. Its 12th edition will take place in 2024, marking 20 years of activity.

LUBICA aims at bringing together and offering inspiring new opportunities to artists who are looking for a challenge, want to “educate about beauty”, take care of the Other, and are willing to think outside the box to come up with new points of view.

The competition is open to artists, architects, designers, and engineers interested in creating monumental (both outdoor and indoor) or smaller (indoor) paper artworks. Projects should exploit paper in bold and innovative ways in order to enhance its original features. Throughout the event, the selected monumental artworks will either be exhibited in the main squares of Lucca (outdoor), or in the indoor venues. After the event, they will become part of LUBICA’s permanent collection and have the possibility of being exhibited during other events.

The theme of LUBICA’s 12th edition is “Here and Now: Tomorrow” Nowadays, nothing seems to last and people often seem to act only in the here and now, without considering the consequences of their actions, as if they faced no tomorrow. Art, on the other hand, has always had its eyes set on tomorrow, and on the human mind’s countless opportunities to travel beyond itself, searching for new worlds to build, imagine and discover. At the same time, knowing how to live in the present – the here and now – is crucial in our existence. The present is the only time in which we can truly exist, grow, feel, love, and rejoice. Too often, we forget  about this simple fact and end up repeating the same actions over and over as if in a trance, that of linear time, the time of our ego, of material living. The outside world, society, our obligations, as well as social media are constantly calling our attention away from the here and now, distracting us from the present moment, postponing it to a later time, tomorrow, maybe.
