The event is curated by Arch. Luca Curci (director of International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group) and Andrea Chinellato (director of Venice Art House and Ca’ Zanardi), and supported by Comune di Venezia and Provincia di Venezia.

For the first time in Venice we give audience the possibility to have private meetings with artists, to meet them personally and share their art and experience. Each event has a strong program of video art screenings and premiers projected in the both venues, art residencies, talks, workshops, live dj set, live experimental dance and art performances.

After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we ask artists to share their personal tales through artworks; to create a link between the personal experience and the audience; to tell us which are the stories and reasons beneath their works.
