This is the seventh edition of  CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2020 – ITSLIQUID International Art Fair, the previous ones have been organized in prestigious venues and historical buildings in Venice, like Palazzo Dolfin Bollani, Palazzo Flangini, Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, presenting more than 600 selected artists, coming from more than 40 countries from all over the world.

The seventh edition of CONTEMPORARY VENICE will be focused on the theme of IDENTITIES and on the relationship between mansociety and contemporary cities. The exhibition will explore the lifestyles and the ways of being that run on a parallel level of our ordinary life. Everyday behaviors are the actual reflection of cities and societies we have created and that have developed a personal identity. This new city character becomes the new order that modifies our everyday life. All artists are invited to reflect on the theme and present works related to it.
