“Liquid Identities” at Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora

Liquid Identities | Venice (Italy)
Crossing fluid frontiers

The historical Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora in Venice was the fascinating venue of Liquid Identities, an international video art festival and photography exhibition which opened the doors on September the 28th to September the 30th. Fifty-seven artists, thirty-two video artists and twenty-five photo artists, from different countries had been selected to be part of this project. The project, organized by International ArtExpo and curated by Luca Curci, dealt with the constant transformation and fluidity of human identities and with all their interconnections with the surrounding environments.

“Liquid Identities” at Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora – Second floor exhibition space

Venetian waters, with all their archetypical connotations of birth, transformation and transition, are the perfect habitat for the artworks to offer us their personal interpretations of identity theme.
Into a mosaic of photos, digital works and videos, we meet disguised portraits, fluid shapes and whirls, fragments of cities and evolving bodies. We are led through a carousel of different artworks which reflect the multitude of existing identities and roles, developed into a society that has broken down all the barriers between people, cultures, spaces and time.

Daniel Pešta, Czech Republic – Narcissus

During this borderless time we have the possibility to live and experience a constant hybridization among cities, bodies, societies, cultures and new technologies, which shapes and regenerates our individualities. These new eclectic and polymorph identities are a fertile ground for the artistic research and an interesting argument for the audience. The exhibition was visited every day by many international visitors and Venetian citizens, journalists and critics, who appreciated the significance of the theme.

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.
