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.

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”
