CfP: Borders Art Fair. Venice, 14 June – 19 September 2021

Call for Applications: Borders Art Fair. Venice, 14 June – 19 September 2021

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the city, the city and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which the limits, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. The festival imagines a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities instead of being social barriers. Participation is open to artists, architects and designers, associate groups and studios.

The festival consists of three main events:

  •  BODIES+CITIES SKIN from June 14 to July 04, 2021 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from June 15 to July 04, 2021 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello
  • FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES from July 12 to August 01, 2021 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from July 13 to August 01, 2021 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello
  • FUTURE LANDSCAPES from August 30 to September 19, 2021 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from August 31 to September 19, 2021 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello

    The deadline for applications is 15 May 2021 (11.59 PM of your local time). To take part in the selection, send submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video-art), links of videos/films/performances and pictures of artworks by e-mail to director@itsliquid.com or complete the online application.
