Artists, photographers and video makers are invited to submit photos, art videos and performance art pieces, which represent and analyze the current evolution of the physical body inside the liquid reality of the virtual world; its transformation from a concrete state to a “liquid” extension. Artworks will investigate the relationship between real cities and virtual places, and how the man lives this dualism and the disaggregation of the physical identities. Selection will be made by It’s LIQUID, International ArtExpo and ART-EVENTS.

To take part in the selection, send your works’ submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video-art), links of videos/performances, pictures of artworks and architecture/design projects via e-mail to lucacurci@lucacurci.com.

The event will be curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group) and organized in partnership with VALORIZZAZIONI CULTURALI | ART-EVENTS.

Luxury, prestige, and comfort are the features of Palazzo Radetzky. The accurate and skilful renovation work that is still underway, will permit to transform the ground floor of the Palace in a private gallery with an exclusive courtyard located in the heart of Brera Quarter, in a unique position of Milano city centre. Equipped with all services and facilities. Designed in the second decade of the Nineteenth century by renowned architect Pietro Pestagalli and built close to the Sforzesco Castle, this palace strikes at the first glance because of its extraordinarily elegant façade in late neo-classical style with decorations and precious external finishes.
