Although the second edition of the Larnaca Biennial was postponed for a year due to the covid-19 pandemic, that allowed the organizers to prepare and consider all possible scenarios for a proper and successful edition in 2021.

Larnaca Biennale 2021 has already established the continuation of the 2018 success considering that one month before the end of the international open call for artwork submissions, artists from 35 countries have already applied.

In this edition the open call for artists is under the theme ”Limitless limits” conceived by Curator Vassilis Vassiliades.
