London Contemporary 003

LONDON CONTEMPORARY will analyze the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time.

During the Art Fair it will be presented the Experimental Video and Performance Art Festival, that will take place from 03 to 06 October, 2019, during the same period of Frieze London. The Festival will provide artists with the great opportunities to show videos and play live performances.

The Experimental Video and Performance Art Festival will analyze the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. 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. The Festival will focuse also on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by the magical power of London, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears through rituals that brings human kind to change, to transform and to evolve their inner world.

Deadline for applications is September 08, 2019 (11.59 PM of your local time).

OUR PAST EXHIBITIONS

Brioni, UK
I enjoyed the atmosphere, the location, the way ITSLIQUID staff has to make you feel at home always. ANIMA MUNDI was really well organized, especially about performances and artworks set up. Being part of this was exciting and I’m looking forward to come again with new projects.

About the festival I think that I was amazed and I liked the works and the organization and I think will be an great oppotunity for the artist showing during the Biennale in Venice.
