Call for Submissions: Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival
Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, Venice: July 15-25, 2015

Deadline: July 08, 2015

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

Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival, international festival of experimental cinema, video art and performance art, that will be hosted in Venice, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi from the 15th to the 25th of July 2015. It will be the second event of a cycle of 3 appointments organized in June, July and August 2015.

The festival consists of three days (July 15-16-17, 2015) dedicated to live art performances and experimental movies screenings; video art works will be screened until July 25, 2015 during “FRACTAL IDENTITIES – Entropy . Disorders . Obsessions” exhibition.



The event is organized and curated by Luca Curci (director of It’s LIQUID and International ArtExpo) and Andrea Chinellato (director of Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House). The festival’s program will include video art screenings, movies’ projections, live performances and meetings with artists involved.

The festival is focused on the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time. People, backgrounds, societies, progress, cities and all their inputs create hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world. The Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival aims to conduct a research and to offer to artists and audience a complete experience about the body.

Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival is part of SELF festival, organized in Venice at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House, from the opening day of Venice Art Biennale (May 9, 2015), with a rich program of different events until November 2015. More:

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal.  It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
