The preparations for the second edition of Larnaca Biennale, an International Exhibition of Fine Arts, have officially begun with artists and artworks from Cyprus and abroad set to exhibit between October 13 and November 26.
The first Larnaca Biennale took place in 2018 and attracted more than 18,000 visitors to the main exhibition and more than 4,000 to parallel events. An international open call for artwork submissions for the 2021 edition received 340 proposals by artists from 50 countries.
This year’s theme is Limitless Limits, as conceived by curator Vassilis Vassiliades while an international jury committee is part of the organising team. Curator and art critic Jean Blanchaert from Milan is a jury member along with Florence Biennale Chief curator and art scholar Dr Melanie Zefferino, Katina Kosta, President of Cyprus Chamber of Fine Arts and sculptor Kikis Patsalos.
In addition to the main exhibition at the Larnaca Municipal Gallery, Pierides Museum and the MultiSpace of Creativity and Culture, the Bienniale will host 15 artistic and cultural parallel events, such as theatre, film screenings, performances, lectures and workshops along with organised tours for colleges, universities and visitors.
The full schedule of events will be announced on September 20.
