The word “canvas” was used for the first time in Italy in the 14th century and it has become the most common support medium for oil painting, replacing wooden panels. Over the centuries, the canvas’ meaning has changed, starting from paintings, through photographic and cinematographic film, exploring the human body, to the digital world. Canvas is the creatives’ common ground, on which they can express themselves. We invite all the artists to share their personal artistic research through any kind of media, from painting to sculptures and installation, from photography to video art and live performance.

CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR consists of 3 main events: BODYSPACES (January / February), MIXING IDENTITIES (March) and VISIONS. We are now selecting artists for:

– VISIONS from April 07 to April 24, 2023, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello
Extended deadline for applications is March 17, 2023 (11.59 PM your local time)

OUR LOCATION

Palazzoalbrizzicapello 001 1

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 FUTURE IDENTITIES Festival, both in 2014.



SOME OF OUR LAST EXHIBITIONS

Abi Polinsky, USA
I think the ITSLIQUID platform is a wonderful opportunity for artists to show their work and gain powerful exposure. I think ITSLIQUID partnerships with amazing and historic venues around Europe are an incredible and unique way to present this art as well.

Frédéric Demeuse, Belgium
A platform that promotes Art in all its forms, serious and internationally oriented, and I invite all artists to try their chance. I really enjoyed collaborating with such a professional team.

Yunshi Chen and Ruichen Xu, USA
We are impressed by the ITSLIQUID GROUP which is extremely professional when organizing the exhibition. You broke tons of the barriers that we architects/artists would face when presenting our projects to people who may not be familiar with the industry. And the group also offers help to us when delivering our work to London. We are thankful and still feel honoured to be selected and exhibited in the LONDON CONTEMPORARY 2022 exhibition.
