Call for Artists: SOCIAL CITIES – Self Identities, Common Places
International architecture, video-art, photography, installation and performing art festival
Palazzo Albrizzi – Venice
Deadline: July 22, 2014

International ArtExpo, in collaboration with It’s LIQUID Group, is selecting all interesting architecture projects, photo works, video/short films, installations and performing art works to include in the next 2014 exhibition:

SOCIAL CITIES – Self Identities, Common Places, international festival of architecture, photography, video art, installation and performing art which will be held in the prestigious Palazzo Albrizzi in Venice (Italy), from July 31 to August 10, 2014. It will be the third event of the festival MORPHOS – Sustainable Empires, organized in Venice in the months between June and November 2014, in the same period of Architecture Biennale.

SOCIAL CITIES – Self Identities, Common Places analyzes the change of social relationship’s dynamics and the new need of real and face-to-face public rapports among people in our contemporary, high-tech and alienating lives. Today new technologies are integrated in our life and permit us to create endless networks of contacts with people from all-over the world, that we will probably never meet in real life. This infinite connections has enriched our lives and our personal identities, but from the other hands has completely modified the way in which we create human connections with people, creating more distance between them and us. Nowadays contemporary metropolis follow the new need of increasing our opportunities to connect with other people; meanwhile people try to create solid identities and individual personalities out of the sea of social networks.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
