The BA organized the first round of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina International Biennale for Miniature Graphics in 2009. The Biennale is an amazing display of technical, aesthetic, and symbolic creativity. It is an international event that includes styles that range from amazing realism to reductionism, from minimalism to abstraction. At the end of the event, each artist donates their miniature prints to the BA art collection, and a catalog is printed out featuring all the artworks.
