CALL FOR ARTISTS
BODYSPACES – CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023
London | July 28 – August 11, 2023

Deadline: July 14, 2023

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with YMX Arts, is pleased to announce the open call for BODYSPACES, first appointment of CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023, that will take place in London, at THE LINE Contemporary Art Space (click here to learn more on this venue) from July 28 to August 11, 2023.

CANVAS is an International Art Fair that will present collective and solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The 2023 edition will represent a forum for the direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair features paintings, sculptures, photography, installations, video art and live performance.

The word “canvas” was used for the first time in Italy in the 14th century and it has become the most common support medium for oil painting, replacing wooden panels. Over the centuries, the canvas’ meaning has changed, starting from paintings, through photographic and cinematographic film, exploring the human body, to the digital world. Canvas is the creatives’ common ground, on which they can express themselves. We invite all the artists to share their personal artistic research through any kind of media, from painting to sculptures and installation, from photography to video art and live performance.

BODYSPACES is about the perception of our body, the first step for the appropriation of our identity. The bodies are the spaces for human experimentation, for the achievement of humanity and its overtaking. The contemporary bodies are composed of corporal and virtual elements influenced by physical and psychical actions. The artistic work on the body’s hybridization will create a new concept of humanity starting any kind of possible life in a contemporary multicultural society. We invite artists to express, through their artistic research, the relationship between the body and human lifecelebrating the new identities in contemporary times.

CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023 will represent a forum for the direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair features paintings, sculptures, photography, installations, video art, live performance and architectural projects.

SOME OF OUR LAST EXHIBITIONS

Ozan Ertug, Turkey
“ITSLIQUID group really impressed me with such a topic and an enormous selection of wonderful locations. Although I normally attend exhibitions and symposiums on many subjects in many places, it was especially very valuable for me to be included in this exhibition. There are very important openings at the intersection of architecture and art, and I think ITSLIQUID has a very important catalyst effect on their events.”

“I am honoured that you picked my work to include in your exhibition. My work doesn’t fall into common photography practice and it touches on taboos, things people are not so comfortable seeing. This shows me that your platform is open to new and groundbreaking ideas.”
