The greatest paper art event

Lucca Biennale is among the most important events dedicated to paper applied to art, design, architecture and creativity, as paper is also an ancient material locally produced in the area of Lucca. It's one of a kind: every edition a theme tied to current events is chosen which the exhibition adheres to, to underline the connection between art and society. It gives the spectator food for thought, guided by the most innovative techniques of paper art.Lucca Biennale presents art exhibitions, projects, events, conferences and workshops.Thanks to an international call for artists, the most innovative and prominent figures of the Paper Art world take part in the Biennale, exhibiting their works during the Indoor exhibition (inside a historical building) and Outdoor exhibition (in the open air), or in the other sections: Design & Architecture, and Performances.

Other than the artistic exhibitions, Lucca Biennale is also a place to meet and grow, through the Network Days (talks and events dedicated to networking, to encourage artists and professionals to engage and exchange knowledge) and Educational Labs (creative workshops designed to accompany children in the discovery of paper art, inspired by the works exhibited). For every edition, Lucca Biennale hosts a guest country, giving it a space and platform to showcase its traditional and innovative use of paper in the world of art.
