Call for artists: LIQUID ROOMS I, May 2015
It’s LIQUID Experimental Art Show
EXTENDED DEADLINE: April 30, 2015
It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with International ArtExpo, is selecting all interesting photo works, experimental video-art works, paintings, installations and performance art works to include in the next 2015 exhibition:
LIQUID ROOMS I – BORDERLESS, experimental art show of photography, video art, installation, painting and performance art, that will be hosted in Venice, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House, on May 9, 10 and 11, 2015.
LIQUID ROOMS I is the first appointment of LIQUID ROOMS experimental art show included in the festival SELF, which will be organized in Venice at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House, starting from the opening day of Venice Art Biennale (May 9, 2015), with a rich program of different events until November 2015. For the first time in Venice we will give audience the possibility to have private meetings with artists, to meet them personally and share their art and experience. Each event will have a strong program of video art screenings and premiers, art residencies, talks, workshops, live dj set, live experimental dance and art performances.
After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we ask artists to share their personal tales through artworks; to create a link between the personal experience and the audience; to tell us which are the stories and reasons beneath their works.

The festival SELF is organized and curated by Luca Curci (director of It’s LIQUID and International ArtExpo) and Andrea Chinellato (director of Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House), and supported by Comune di Venezia and Provincia di Venezia.
LIQUID ROOMS is an innovative exhibition format divided in 2 sections: the first one consists in dedicated art shows hosted in Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi’s private rooms/apartments, that artists can use at the same time as exhibition space and art residency (accommodation included); the second one is the collective show hosted in the common area of Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and in VENICE ART HOUSE gallery.
LIQUID ROOMS is an invitation for artists to explore their intimate self and to analyze the relationship between man and space (private and/or public). Opening the doors of their rooms to visitors and crossing the exhibition path through the different venues, artists and audience will disclose and explore the intimate part of their art and beings.
LIQUID ROOMS I – BORDERLESS will be focused on the concept of “borders” and its transformation; on how people feel the idea of borders and how this idea is linked with the concept of freedom. Ethic, social, cultural, sexual and religious borders are getting confused and we feel free to overcome and change all the limits, creating and showing a new type of identity. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity. The event will also analyze the idea of urban and cities’ borders, how people live them, how they are modified in contemporary metropolis.
