BORDERS Art Fair 2020
ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is proud to announce the astonishing success of BORDERS Art Fair 2020 that occurred in Venice at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello, from July 23 to November 29, 2020.
BORDERS Art Fair 2020, curated by Arch. Luca Curci, has presented more than 300 artists from more than 40 countries, with a great selection of paintings, photographs, installations, sculptures, video art, architecture, design and performance art during its three appointments: the first one divided into two sections, BODIES+CITIES SKIN and Venice International Art Fair 2020 (July 23 – August 21), then FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES (Sept 03 – Oct 02) and last but not least, FUTURE LANDSCAPES (Oct 15 – Nov 29).
Never as this time the concept of the exhibition seemed to be epochal: since several months, the humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer. The new invisible borders generated by the Covid-19 are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, re-thinking common spaces and entire cities. Could the new “borders” be the solution? We have invited artists, architects and designers to be inspired by this new era, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears that brings humankind to change, to transform and to evolve our inner world.

The festival focuses on the concept of SURFACES, borders and structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground. The Festival analyzed the idea of human and urban places, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which surfaces shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid bodies and cities”, where differences create new possibilities, developing new structures, physical, intellectual and spiritual. The festival aimed to analyze the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time.
