International Poster Biennale Lublin 2021

International Poster Biennale Lublin 2021 Start | Jury members | Qualified artists

Dear Poster Lovers!

From February 10, 2022, the interior of the Center for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin will host the final exhibition of the 5th International Poster Biennale Lublin. Despite the pandemic, the organizers recorded a record number of applications. At the exhibition, we will see the best works selected by an international jury from over 4,000 posters sent to the competition by artists and designers from dozens of countries around the world. A wide spectrum of topics covered, a wide range of means of expression used by participants and a variety of creative attitudes: from graphic minimalism and vector discipline to painting expression, will provide a lot of visual impressions not only for connoisseurs of poster art. The traditional formula of the Lublin biennial is to show the works of art school students and professionals in the same exhibition spaces. This guarantees fresh optics, unheard of at other similar inspections. The winners will be announced during the opening on February 10, 2022 at 18:00.

The organizer of the event is the Institute of Fine Arts of the Faculty of Arts of UMCS in Lublin, co-organizer: Center for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin. The event was held under the patronage of the Rector of Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, prof. dr hab. Radosław Dobrowolski.
