CALL FOR ARTISTS
BORDERPLACES – CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023
London | August 31 – September 14, 2023

Deadline: August 15, 2023

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with YMX Arts, is pleased to announce the open call for BORDERPLACES, second 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 August 31 to September 14, 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.

BORDERPLACES focuses on the concept of “borders” in contemporary society, exploring their existence between the soul and the body, humans and urban spaces, cities and the ground, which shape people’s lives and behaviours, often leading to restricted freedom and a feeling of detachment. In response to these limitations, human beings strive to break free and forge innovative possibilities for themselves. We envision a world where “liquid cities” emerge, where differences no longer serve as social barriers but instead give rise to new possibilities.

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.


CANVAS ART FAIR consists of 3 main events: BODYSPACES (July/August), BORDERPLACES and VISIONS. We are now selecting artists for:

– BORDERPLACES from August 31 to September 14, 2023, at THE LINE London

SOME OF OUR LAST EXHIBITIONS

Enrico Matarazzo, Italy
I think that ITSLIQUID GROUP represent a great opportunity for all the artists out there. Giving the opportunity to emerging artists to share their works is not something you see every day. I surely recommend a collaboration with ITSLIQUID GROUP. Great experience, great locations and you also have the possibility to see new works from various artists around the world.

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.”
