why self
It’s LIQUID International Art Show
Deadline: April 20, 2015

 

It’s LIQUID Group, in collaboration with International ArtExpo, is selecting all interesting photo works, experimental video-art works, paintings, installations and performance art works to include in the next 2015 exhibition: 

WHY SELF – Adventures of social identities, international art exhibition of photography, video art, installation, painting and performance art, that will be hosted in Venice, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House, from the 9th to the 30th of May 2015

WHY SELF – Adventures of social identities is the first appointment of the festival SELF which 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. Each event will have a strong program of video art screenings and premiers, art residencies, talks, workshops, live dj set, live experimental dance and art performances. 

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 tell us their stories and the reasons beneath their works. More info about SELF festival: www.itsliquid.com/call-self-venice-2015.html 

The festival 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). 

WHY SELF – Adventures of social identities will be focused on the analysis of the identities in relationship with the social context. A person’s uniqueness is an evolving system which is constantly transformed by social, cultural, religious, and ethnic circumstances. This continuous mutation creates new blends, new crossing identities, which are the results of the society in which they live. Not only the external input, but all the people we meet, with their own uniqueness, contribute to the evolution of our individuality. 

During WHY SELF exhibition, Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House will also host the first appointment of the experimental art show LIQUID ROOMS (May 9-10-11, 2015). More info about LIQUID ROOMS I: www.itsliquid.com/call-liquid-rooms1-venice.html 

Each event 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 exhibition cycle there will be the publication of a catalogue
