Contemporary Venice - Architectures of Identities

Call for Artists: CONTEMPORARY VENICE – Architectures of Identities
Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, Venice: 30 April – 19 May, 2016
Deadline: April 18, 2016

It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with International ArtExpo and Ca’ Zanardi, is selecting all interesting photo, experimental video-art, painting, installation/sculpture and performance art works to include in the next 2016 exhibition:

CONTEMPORARY VENICE – Architectures of Identities, international art exhibition of photography, video art, installation, painting and performance art, that will be hosted in Venice, in Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, from April 30 to May 19, 2016.

The exhibition is curated by Luca Curci (director of It’s LIQUID and International ArtExpo) and Andrea Chinellato (director of Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House Gallery).

CONTEMPORARY VENICE – Architectures of Identities will be focused on all the different facets of social, physical and cultural identities of our contemporary societies. Everyday we deal with a multitude of different identities and roles: we face the public life creating and adapting our social identities; our body and aesthetic tastes modify and are modified by our physical and sexual identities; our whole being evolves as well as contemporary cultures and modern cities do. Differences create new compounds and exchange possibilities.

Contemporary Venice - Architectures of Identities

 

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice; the Serenissima. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is located off the main tourist drag but is still easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.

 

Starting from 2001, Luca Curci with International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group, have curated and organized more than 120 contemporary art events, with the participation of about 4.000 international artists from all-over the world (UK, Spain, Italy, France, Austria, Portugal, The Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, Greece, Germany, Turkey, Poland, USA, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Israel, UAE, Russia, Thailand, etc.) with an average of 45 artworks exhibited in each show (with a maximum of 108 artists involved in the great MORPHOS festival held in Venice during the Architecture Biennale 2014). The organization has international partnerships with art venues in Italy, Turkey, USA, Spain, Argentina, UK, Middle East, etc., and collaborates with museums, galleries and institutions such as MuMo – Museum Montanelli in Prague, Laura Haber Gallery in Buenos Aires, MIXER gallery in Istanbul and MECA art center in Almeria.
