Venice Experimental Video and Performance Art Festival, international art exhibition of video art, performance art, installation, painting and photography, has been hosted in Venice, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, from the 04th to 13th of September 2015.

The event is curated by Arch. Luca Curci (director of International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group) and Andrea Chinellato (director of Venice Art House and Ca’ Zanardi), and supported by Comune di Venezia and Provincia di Venezia.
The festival consisted in ten days: the first three days (September 04-05-06, 2015) has been dedicated to live art performances and video art works; and painting, installation and photo works will be exhibited until September 13, 2015. Venice Experimental Video and Performance Art Festival has been hosted in Venice, during the same period of the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.
For the first time in Venice we give audience the possibility to have private meetings with artists, to meet them personally and share their art and experience. Each event has a strong program of video art screenings and premiers projected in the both venues, art residencies, talks, workshops, live dj set, live experimental dance and art performances.
After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we ask artists to share their personal tales through artworks; to create a link between the personal experience and the audience; to tell us which are the stories and reasons beneath their works.

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal. It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
