Anima Mundi 2022 007

ANIMA MUNDI is the invisible energy behind all the natural and artificial elements that allows the planet to live. Thanks to the hidden connections of ANIMA MUNDI, all the ecosystems of the Earth, before and after the appearance of mankind, found their equilibrium, their ways to live and to develop themselves, to transform and to evolve. All the beings of the planet, plants, minerals, animals are permeated by a secret force that has always stimulated human thought and research.

The festival aims to discover these multiple forms of hidden connections between the soul and the body, mankind and the natural elements, the natural spaces and the cities. We invite artists to show their reflections about the various ways in which the ANIMA MUNDI expresses the relationships among all the existing entities and the natural and cultural systems and to represent by their artistic works the processes of the evolution of the world in which we all live. Artists, designers and architects are invited to talk about ANIMA MUNDI through photo reportage of cities, hidden places, photographic documentaries, personal experiences, presenting their works of photography, painting, sculpture/installation, design and architecture, video-art and live performance.

Extended Deadline for applications is March 31, 2022 (11.59 PM of your local time)

OUR LOCATIONS

Palazzobembo 001

Palazzo Bembo, located in the historic district of San Marco, the heart of Venice, is available to host solo shows and group exhibitions of the most talented emerging and established artists, designers, and architects selected by our professional team among the numerous show participation requests.

Palazzo Bembo is one of the late Gothic Venetian buildings built in the right middle of the famous Canal Grande, a few meters from the renowned Rialto Bridge. Its name comes from the humanist and literary cardinal Pietro Bembo, known for the so-called “linguistic question” during the Italian XV century. 

The facade of the building, with all its gothic pentafore, is as fascinating as the interior which is divided into three floors and characterized by large salons. The seventeenth-century staircase overlooks the internal courtyard that leads to the noble floor, where decorations are dating back to the same century, in Baroque style. The exhibition space, on the first floor, overlooks the Canal Grande and the Rialto Bridge, giving a suggestive view both day and night. 

Palazzoalbrizzicapello 001

Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello is one of the most known palaces of the Renaissance in Venice. It is a historical building dated back to the 16th century, and it has been owned by several noble Venetian families, as demonstrated by the frescoed ceilings, the artistic stuccos and the fine furniture that enrich its rooms. The Palace welcomes visitors with its beautiful private garden on the ground floor, and then it gathers the guests in its large first-floor salons, in which past and present dialogue together. The restored Old Masters’ frescoes and the contemporary art masterpieces that are periodically shown in the exhibitions hosted here, make Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello the perfect location for the balance between old and new, between ancient environment and contemporary art, architecture and design.

Today the building is managed by ACIT Venice – the Italian-German Cultural Association – which is considered one of the most important intercultural associations in Europe. Thanks to the ACIT unceasing cultural activity, Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello has nowadays frequent collaborations with the Goethe Institute and with other local and international institutions, maintaining its ancient reputation. Because of these relations, it presents a huge program of memorable art exhibitions, conferences, congresses and concerts. Among the last institutional exhibitions, its participation in the 58th Venice Biennale with the Guatemala pavilion, the Dominican Republic pavilion and the Grenada pavilion. ITSLIQUID Group already had the pleasure to held some festivals and exhibitions in Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, as MORPHOS Festival and FUTURE IDENTITIES Festival, both in 2014.



SOME OF OUR LAST EXHIBITIONS

Magdalene Carmen, Austria
I am new to ITSLIQUID platform and have found it so far excellent and easy to engage with. I am a liquid sign myself (Pisces) & therefore naturally aligned with the values of fluidity, freedom of movement and adaptability. I love ItsLiquid platform’s bringing together contemporary art, architecture and design (which happen to be my own mediums/content), their global reach and exciting exhibition location + spaces. I’ve also enjoyed their accessibility and especially found their people to be warm and easy to deal with.

A Young Lee, South Korea
I enjoyed it a lot. ITSLIQUID GROUP actively helped and communicated with artists. Moreover, I felt that they tried to let people enjoy the art rather than the benefits. It is a little hope. I would love to participate if they offer virtual exhibitions too.

Casa Jaguar Studio, Barcelona
We are very glad we came upon this open call for artists and that we were selected to be a part of the fair. It has been stimulating and motivating to connect to a platform that gives rising artists international visibility and a channel to connect, not only to other artists but to resources that help us in promoting our art and events. We are just starting and ITSLIQUID has been very supportive of our project.

Marc Olthoff, The Netherlands
It is a great community and platform, transcending art forms, cultures and geography. I enjoy the direct personal contact and the professionalism of the group. I am very honoured to be awarded as the winner in your 9th International Contest and ITSLIQUID has helped me to reach a much larger audience than I had. Both through its platform as well as through the physical exhibitions in London and Venice.
