Fear and desire are the keywords of the 2021 edition of LuBiCa - Lucca Biennale Cartasia, the combination on which artists, performers, designers and architects have been asked to reflect in order to talk about art and society through their works.
There will be many sections of the festival: Outdoor Exhibition, Indoor Exhibition, Performance, Architecture, Fashion, Focus on (guest country), Events, Workshops, Network Days and Off Section, which will host artistic performances, focus on fashion, exhibition of jewellery, accessories and clothes made of paper and cardboard, workshops dedicated to children and adults, and the unfailing appointment with the Ned-Network days where fans and professionals of the sector meet and network.
From 2 August to 26 September, the monumental sculptures will enrich the most evocative corners of the city and will be the subject of an exhibition at the former Comics Museum and of many events and appointments.

Over one hundred works by artists from all over the world for the indoor exhibition at the former Comics Museum, two thousand square metres to be discovered,
