The selection will be based on the main concept of the hybridization between physical and social identities in contemporary cities, and the mixing between people and space. Urban environments, people, rules and limits are no more distinct realities, but they constantly modify and get mixed together, generating new connections and hybrid results. Ethic, social, sexual and religious borders get confused and metropolis become a puzzle composed by different cities constantly modified by the man.

The whole city of Bari will be involved in this great exhibition, hosting international artists and artworks, collateral art events, conferences and summits.

All participants will be insert in the catalogue edited by Adda Editore, and at the end of the event we will select the winners of the free participation in one of the International Exhibition organized by International ArtExpo and offered by It’s Liquid Group, 3 art residences at Palazzo Calò in Bari, Tenuta Pinto in Mola di Bari (Bari) and Palazzo Siena in Minervino di Lecce (Lecce) and promotional services on It’s LIQUID website.

The Castello Svevo (Swabian Castle) was built around 1132 by Norman King Roger II. The Castle is surrounded by a moat on all sides, except the northern section, which was bordering the sea and can be accessed from the bridge and the gate on the southern side. It is mainly composed of the Aragon walls and the main Swabian tower, and is currently used for exhibitions.

Sala Murat is a cultural space of 400 square meters located in Ferrarese Square, in the centre of Bari. It’s dedicated to art and contemporary exhibition, workshops and conferences. Inside the space it’s permanently exhibited a wall drawing by the famous minimalist artist Sol LeWitt.

Santa Teresa dei Maschi was built between 1690 and 1696 as reported in the tympanum of the front lunette. The interior has a Greek cross with arms covered with barrel vaults and the central square covered by a pointed arch dome. Inside can be admired paintings by Andrea Miglionico and some ancient sculptures of the mysteries of the Passion of the Christ from the church of Vallisa. The cloister is the seat of the Provincial Library for Culture and Arts “De Gemmis”, given in 1952 by Baron de Gennaro Gemmis.

Art | September 17, 2020

El Anatsui is one of the most important contemporary artists of his generation. The Kunstmuseum Bern is mounting the largest exhibition of the work of the Ghanaian artist so far.

The exhibition focuses on the monumentality of El Anatsui's work and encompasses every media in the artist’s prodigious fifty-year career. "We are proud and happy to be able show this truly splendid exhibition.

INTERVIEW: SABRINA MEISSNER

Interviews | September 14, 2020

Sabrina Meissner grew up in North Africa and Southern Germany and is a Munich-based contemporary artist. Sabrina is fascinated by the tension between security, order, rebellion and freedom, chaos and structures. She has developed her own distinctive style which make her abstract portraits very recognizable and attractive for collectors. A strong use of contrasts and helmet-like hair in abstracted architectural and neo-surreal settings are the main distinctive features. In December 2019, one of her paintings was chosen and shown as part of a digital group exhibition at Art Basel Miami. In 2020, her work was awarded the “Review Me” art prize. Her works are hanging in private collections in Germany and the United States. Read more
