BIPB 2016 is an international competition that brings together international visual artists who share the passion for the traditional techniques of engraving and its unexpected possibilities and visual solutions. Therefore, we wish to offer these artists the possibility to reinvent the engraved image which managed to withstand the test of time and impose itself as a form of contemporary artistic manifestation.
Since its first edition in 2014, Bucharest International Print Biennale had 65 exhibitors and the second edition will include, in addition to the exhibitions, series of conferences and artist talks.
