CALL FOR ARTISTS
VENICE EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO AND PERFORMING ART FESTIVAL 2024
Venice | March 15 – 29, 2024
Deadline: February 29, 2024
ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for VENICE EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO AND PERFORMING ART FESTIVAL 2024, a one-night event dedicated to video and performance art, that will be held in Venice at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello (click here to learn more on this venue), during the 14th edition of CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2024, from March 15 to March 29, 2024.
The selected video works will be featured throughout the entire period of the exhibition, while the performances will take place on the opening night. We invite performers, dancers, video makers and filmmakers to be inspired by the magical power of Venice and to analyze the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness.
VENICE EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO AND PERFORMING ART FESTIVAL 2024 is focused on the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary times. People, backgrounds, societies, progress, cities and all their inputs create hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world.
The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality: a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.
After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we ask artists to share their personal tales through videos and performances, to create a link between their personal experience and the audience, to tell us which are the stories and reasons beneath their works.
Deadline for applications is February 29, 2024 (11.59 PM your local time)

Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello is one of the most known palaces of the Renaissance in Venice. It is a historical building dating 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 enriches 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, is 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 hold some festivals and exhibitions in Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, such as MORPHOS Festival and the FUTURE IDENTITIES Festival, both in 2014.
