CALL FOR ARTISTS
BODYSPACES – CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2024
September 13 – 27, 2024
Deadline: August 07, 2024

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for BODYSPACES, first appointment of CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2024, that will take place in Venice at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello (click here to learn more on this venue) from September 13 to September 27, 2024, and in other prestigious venues and historical buildings, during the 60th Venice Biennale of Art.

CANVAS is an international Art Fair that will showcase collective and solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The 2024 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 life, celebrating the new identities in contemporary times.

Deadline for applications is August 07, 2024 (11.59 PM your local time)

Artists, photographers, video makers, and performers are invited to submit their works. To take part in the selection, send your works’ submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video art), links to videos/films/performances and pictures via e-mail to director@itsliquid.com

        OUR LOCATION

        Palazzoalbrizzicapello 001 1

        Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello is one of the most known palaces of the Renaissance in Venice. It is a historical building dating back to the 16th century, and it has been owned by several noble Venetian families, as demonstrated by the frescoed ceilings, the artistic stuccos and the fine furniture that enriches its rooms. The Palace welcomes visitors with its beautiful private garden on the ground floor, and then it gathers the guests in its large first-floor salons, in which past and present dialogue together. The restored Old Masters’ frescoes and the contemporary art masterpieces that are periodically shown in the exhibitions hosted here, make Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello the perfect location for the balance between old and new, between ancient environment and contemporary art, architecture and design.

        Today the building is managed by ACIT Venice – the Italian-German Cultural Association – which is considered one of the most important intercultural associations in Europe. Thanks to the ACIT unceasing cultural activity, Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello has nowadays frequent collaborations with the Goethe Institute and with other local and international institutions, maintaining its ancient reputation. Because of these relations, it presents a huge program of memorable art exhibitions, conferences, congresses and concerts. Among the last institutional exhibitions, is its participation in the 58th Venice Biennale with the Guatemala pavilion, the Dominican Republic pavilion and the Grenada pavilion. ITSLIQUID Group already had the pleasure of holding some festivals and exhibitions in Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, such as MORPHOS Festival and FUTURE IDENTITIES Festival, both in 2014.

        I was completely satisfied with the Itsliquid Group service, we got every help we needed and the project manager was kind and supportive. We had the opportunity to show and present our artwork and introduce ourselves on foreign platforms. It is a great way to expand our network and I will apply again next year!

        My experience has been very good. Lots of clear communication and information, and everyone I’ve spoken to has been super helpful and kind. I already have plans to meet with and to collaborate with some of the artists I met at the opening event, so it was a great introduction to new people too!
