CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: SPACES – SURFACES FESTIVAL- ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival
ITSLIQUID GROUP, in collaboration with Venice Events and Ca’ Zanardi, is selecting all interesting photo, video-art, painting, installation, performance art works, and design/architecture projects to include in SPACES – ITS LIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival.
SPACES is the third appointment of SURFACES FESTIVAL that will be hosted in Venice, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, from September 27, 2018 to November 25, 2018, and at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, from September 28, 2018 to November 25, 2018, during the same period of the BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2018 – 16th International Architecture Exhibition, with a rich program of different events until November 2018.
The festival focuses on the concept of SURFACES, borders and structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, space, and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban places, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which surfaces shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts by breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid bodies and cities“, where differences create new possibilities, developing new structures, physical, intellectual and spiritual. The festival aims to analyze the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time.
SPACES are abstract, infinite and conceptual. Are associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefining their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in open flow of pure ideas. Each exhibition will present an exclusive selection of artworks, video screening program, intense live performances, with its own dedicated opening ceremony and PR campaign. At the end of the whole festival, there will be the publication of a catalog.
During these main events, will be presented works of photography, painting, sculpture/installation, design and architecture, video-art and live performance.
