Call for Artists: CONTEMPORARY VENICE – Architectures of Identities
Palazzo Dolfin Bollani, Venice: July 04 – August 22, 2015

It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with International ArtExpo, Ca’ Zanardi and Artouverture, is selecting all interesting photo works, experimental video-art works, paintings, installations and performance art works to include in the next 2015 exhibition:

CONTEMPORARY VENICE – Architectures of Identities, international art exhibition of photography, video art, installation, painting and performance art, that will be hosted in Venice, in the prestigious Palazzo Dolfin Bollani, from July 04 to August 22, 2015.


The exhibition is curated by Luca Curci (director of It’s LIQUID and International ArtExpo), Andrea Chinellato (director of Ca’ Zanardi), Carlo Francesco Galli (director of Artouverture).

CONTEMPORARY VENICE – Architectures of Identities will be focused on all the different facets of social, physical and cultural identities of our contemporary societies. Everyday we deal with a multitude of different identities and roles: we face the public life creating and adapting our social identities; our body and aesthetic tastes modify and are modified by our physical and sexual identities; our whole being evolves as well as contemporary cultures and modern cities do. Differences create new compounds and exchange possibilities.
