Feedback Release: VENICE ART HOUSE – BORDERS & DISORDERS
VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery, Venice – March 13 / 20, 2015
VENICE ART HOUSE – BORDERS & DISORDERS, contemporary art exhibition of photography, video-art, painting, installation and performance art, was held in Venice at VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery, from the 13th to the 20th of March 2015. The event was organized by It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with International ArtExpo and Ca’ Zanardi.
VENICE ART HOUSE – BORDERS & DISORDERS was the first event of a series, created through the partnership between It’s LIQUID Group and International ArtExpo with Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House. It aims to present contemporary artists in the heart of the city of Venice, in a new venue, Venice Art House gallery, located few minutes from Ponte di Rialto and Santa Lucia station.
The event was curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group) and Andrea Chinellato (curator and director of Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery). The festival’s program included video art screenings, movies’ projections, live performances and meetings with artists involved.
VENICE ART HOUSE – BORDERS & DISORDERS was focused on the concept of “borders”, on how people feel the idea of borders and how this idea is linked with the concept of freedom. Borders, conceived as personal, geographical and cultural ones, can define our idea of freedom in contemporary society, or they can be considered as an obstacle to freedom which need to be broken by a single person or a social/political/cultural group to reach his/her personal freedom (current events in our world are an example of it). The event also analyzed the idea of urban and cities’ borders, how people live them, how they are modified in contemporary metropolis.
