Deadline: March 01, 2015
It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with International ArtExpo, Ca’ Zanardi and VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery, is selecting all interesting video-art works, photography works, paintings, installations and performance art works to include in the next 2015 exhibition:
VENICE ART WEEK – BORDERS & DISORDERS, contemporary art exhibition of photography, video-art, painting, installation and performance art, that will be held in VENICE ART HOUSE Gallery, from the 13th to the 20th of March 2015.
VENICE ART WEEK – BORDERS & DISORDERS is the first event of a series, created through the partnership between It’s LIQUID Group and International ArtExpo with Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House. It aims to present contemporary artists in the heart of the city of Venice, in a new venue, Venice Art House gallery, located few minutes from Ponte di Rialto and Santa Lucia station.
VENICE ART WEEK – BORDERS & DISORDERS will be focused on the concept of “borders”, on how people feel the idea of borders and how this idea is linked with the concept of freedom. Borders, conceived as personal, geographical and cultural ones, can define our idea of freedom in contemporary society, or they can be considered as an obstacle to freedom which need to be broken by a single person or a social/political/cultural group to reach his/her personal freedom (current events in our world are an example of it). The event will also analyze the idea of urban and cities’ borders, how people live them, how they are modified in contemporary metropolis.
