Cyprus | Larnaca Biennale 2023 call for artists
Larnaca Biennale in Cyprus, 11 October to 24 November 2023, calls for works from anywhere in the world under the theme of “Home Away from Home”.
The 2023 Larnaca Biennale takes viewers on an exploratory journey through definitions of belonging, from the deep-rooted to the distant. More than just a built structure of walls, doors and furnishings, the notion of home might constitute something more abstract – a fleeting feeling, a treasured object, an evocative memory, a fixed place in time, an identity, or even a lengthy pursuit.
How are artists supported?
The Larnaca Biennale will grant a total of 12 + awards. The winners will be announced and awarded at the opening ceremony on the 11 of October 2023.
Depending on availability, the Biennial organisers will offer free or discounted air tickets for artists to visit Larnaca for displaying their work or as visitors. Priority will be given to artists that have to set-up their installations or performance artists.
The organisers will provide free or discounted accommodation in selected hotels based on availability. Participating artists from abroad will be offered free transportation to and from Larnaca airport to Larnaca.
Who is eligible?
Participation is open to all artists, professionals or amateurs, art students, designers and photographers. Groups of artists can also participate as a team with a single proposal. There is an application fee.
There are no general restrictions concerning the dimensions of works, although there is limited space. Material, technique, style and medium for works is open.
