Liquid Cities & Temporary Identities | Finland 2013
Hybridization between identities and urban environment

Liquid Cities & Temporary Identities, International Art Festival of Photography, Video Art and Computer Graphics, Painting and Performing Art was held in the city of Espoo (Finland), at Espoonsilta Gallery from the 10th June to 16th June 2013. Thirty-six artists, from different countries, were selected to be part of this project.
The event, organized by International ArtExpo and curated by Luca Curci, dealt with the theme of hybridization between identities and urban environment.

The selection was based on the main concept of hybridization between identities and urban environment, as the result of liquid identities and liquid contacts between people. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world. Mixing sustainable transport; modern (ICT) communication infrastructure; sustainable economic development; and wise management of natural resources, human, intellectual and social capital, is the key to reach a future better life quality.

International ArtExpo is proud about “Liquid Cities & Temporary Identities” event for the great collaboration with the gallerist Maija Ylä-Sahra and the professional and “Scandinavian signature” gave to the event. The exhibition was reviewed by International and Finnish press; and was visited every day by many International visitors and Finnish citizens particularly sensitive to the contemporary art new languages.

Espoonsilta Gallery is an artist run, non-profit contemporary art space in the Center of Espoo (Finland) since 2006. Dedicated to contemporary art and music happenings, the gallery acts on local, national and international level.

International ArtExpo would like to acknowledge all the video artists for their effort, vision, and passion for contemporary art.
