The festival SELF will be organized in Venice at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House, starting from the opening day of Venice Art Biennale, May 9, 2015, with a rich program of different events until November 2015.
For the first time in Venice we will give audience the possibility to have private meetings with artists, to meet them personally and share their art and experience.
The festival will include collective and solo exhibitions of photography, painting, video art, installation/sculpture and performance art, with a strong program of video art screenings and premiers, art residencies, talks, workshops, meetings between artists and audience, live dj set, live experimental dance and art performances.
The festival aims to conduct an intensive investigation about the SELF. After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we ask artists to share their personal tales through artworks; to create a link between the personal experience and the audience; to tell us which are the stories and reasons beneath the works.
SELF is organized and curated by Luca Curci (director of It’s LIQUID and International ArtExpo) and Andrea Chinellato (director of Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House), and supported by Comune di Venezia and Provincia di Venezia.
LIQUID ROOMS is an innovative exhibition format divided in 2 sections: the first one consists in dedicated art shows hosted in Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi’s private rooms/apartments, that artists can use at the same time as exhibition space and art residency (accommodation included); the second one is the collective show hosted in the common area of Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and in VENICE ART HOUSE gallery.

LIQUID ROOMS is an invitation for artists to explore their intimate self and to analyze the relationship between man and space (private and/or public). Opening the doors of their rooms to visitors and crossing the exhibition path through the different venues, artists and audience will disclose and explore the intimate part of their art and beings. After many years of research and exhibitions about the evolution of the idea of identity, we ask artists to share their personal tales through their artworks; to create a link between their personal experience and the audience through the artworks exhibited; to share their private tales and the reason beneath their work with the public.
