Contemporary Venice EXTENDED will be part of Contemporary Venice – It’s LIQUID International Art Show, international exhibition of photography, painting, video art, installation/sculpture and performance art. The exhibition, under the patronage of the city and province of Venice, will be held in Venice, in the prestigious Palazzo Flangini, from December 15th 2014 to January 31st 2015.

To take part in the selection, send your works’ submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video-art), links of videos/performances and pictures of artworks via e-mail to lucacurci@lucacurci.com.

Contemporary Venice is focused on the theme of IDENTITIES and on the relationship between man, society and contemporary cities. The exhibition will explore the lifestyles and ways of being that run on a parallel level of our ordinary life. Everyday behaviours are the actual reflection of cities and societies we have created and that have developed a personal identity. This new city character becomes the new order that modifies our everyday life.

All artists are invited to reflect on the theme and present works related to it. Deadline for applications is January 08, 2015.

The event is curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group) and organized in partnership with VALORIZZAZIONI CULTURALI | ART-EVENTS.

Palazzo Flangini, located in the heart of Venice, nearby Santa Lucia railway station and overlooking Grand Canal, is a luxury, elegant and noble palace, a typical expression of the Venetian Baroque. Built since 1644 and projected by the famous architect Giuseppe Sardi, the palace is still finely decorated with sculptures, “stucchi”, frescos and paintings, with a monumental façade on Canal Grande. It is perfectly and entirely restored and fully equipped for hosting any type of events and exhibitions. In addition to an exclusive entrance directly from Campo San Geremia, it has a private water entrance and a dock alongside the facade. The total area of about 850 sq/mt is divided in ground floor (the typical Venetian Fondaco) and the noble first floor (Portego).
