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.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
