Paper Art Biennial 2016 Cartasia - Call for Artists

Paper Art Biennial 2016 Cartasia – Call for Artists

Cartasia 2016 promotes 3 open calls for works which spark a food for thought on the theme Borders & Perspectives.

Call for artists application

Deadline: 14 Dec 2015

  • Outdoor exhibition, where the artists make some monumental paper sculptures in Lucca one month before the Biennial beginning (with our paper materials);
  • Indoor exhibition, where the artists send us from 1 to 20 paper artworks already made; and
  • Logo (for Italian graphic designers)

To this effect, the artists are in the thorny and favored position of create a new transgressive language. By exploring such issues as death, marriage, sexuality, money, racism, freedom, religion, gender, war, violence, and politics, artists can talk about themes in subtle or explicit way through their artwork.

Chosen artists will benefit by receiving the following:

  • Accommodation
  • Round-trip travel costs
  • A prize of € 1’000.00
  • Promotion of the artwork
  • Assistance by technical department
  • Hardware items and wood
  • Tools and spare parts

Cartasia was the first International Paper Festival in the world and is the only in Italy that promotes and values the paper district and the Paper Mills through contemporary art.
