Lucca Biennale Paper art Indoor




This Call for Entries invites artists from around the world to make themselves heard, by using paper.
The Biennale aims to create motivations and ways of comparison for the artists who decide to get

points of view.

The contest, open to professional and emerging artists, aims to select works, performances, ideas
involving the use of paper and derivatives focusing on originality and / or a bold, unique and
innovative use. The final selection will include the exhibition of works and the creation of
performances in the venues of the Biennale.

The primary requirement is the use of paper and its derivatives. The call is open to all artists who are
over 18. All art forms are allowed.
Participation involves a minimum of one workpiece to a maximum of 20 pieces with the exclusion of:
- Video Art and / or Digital Graphics: video, film, works with animation techniques on any digital and
