Border Cities & New Identities | Romania 2013

Border Cities & New Identities, International Art Festival of Architecture, Photography, Video Art, Computer Graphics, Painting and Performing Art, was held in Suceava (Romania), at The Water Plant “Uzina de Apa” – Center of Architecture, Urban Culture and Landscape, from the 26th July to 02nd August 2013. Thirty-three artists, from different countries, were selected to be part of this project. The event, organized by International ArtExpo and curated by Luca Curci, dealt with the theme of mixing identities and urban environment.

The winner of 1 International Exhibition organized by International ArtExpo is Stephanie Roland from Belgium.


The selection was based on the main concept of hybridization between identities and urban environment, as the result of liquid identities and liquid contacts between people. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world. Mixing sustainable transport; modern (ICT) communication infrastructure; sustainable economic development; and wise management of natural resources, human, intellectual and social capital, is the key to reach a future better life quality.

The exhibition was reviewed by International and Romanian press; and was visited every day by many International visitors and Romanian citizens particularly sensitive to the contemporary art new languages.

The Center of Architecture, Urban Culture and Landscape “Uzina de Apa” is the result of a  conversion of an old, abandoned Water Plant into a Cultural Center. The project results as a collaboration including municipal authorities, local community and an array of architects, engineers and students. Moreover, private contractors and companies dedicated to innovative techniques are involved to achieve an exemplary public-private partnership. Although originally conceived as a technological construction, the new “Water Plant” is now capable of hosting events ranging from conferences to concerts and exhibitions. By reclaiming its place in the city, this project attempts the true meaning of the word “sustainability” (sus = under and tenere = to hold) – to keep in existence, to maintain and prolong.

International ArtExpo would like to acknowledge all the video artists for their effort, vision, and passion for contemporary art.
