Highlights of 2017

2017 has been a year of community building and organization for Cartasia – Lucca Biennale. In July the 3 Calls for Artists for the upcoming edition of the Biennale were announced: the OutDoor, Indoor and Design calls. The Outdoor Call closed on the 14th December 2017, with excellent submissions: thank you to all the artists and professionals that presented their projects.

During 2017, Cartasia – Lucca Biennale also had the pleasure of taking part in the Contemporary Art Day organized by AMACI to promote it's fruition. The Biennale took part by organizing guided tours to the monumental paper sculptures of the 8th edition, which reside under the ancient walls of Lucca and which are still visitable.

The year concluded with an invitation to the Director and to the Coordinator of the Biennale, Emiliano Galigani and Federica Moretti, to be present as jury members during the IAI Design Event held by the Asia Pacific Design Federation in Shanghai.

Objectives for 2018

2018 will be the year of the 9th edition of Cartasia – Lucca Biennale. With the two Indoor and Design Calls closing in February, the selection for next edition's artists and designers begins, along with the planning of a new, bigger, more innovative Biennale as you've never seen before.
