CALL FOR ARTISTS

BORDERS FESTIVAL
Venice July-Nov 2020
Deadline: July 01, 2020

The first edition of BORDERS Festival took place in Venice in 2016, in the same period of the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, presenting a great selection of more than 500 art and architecture works realized by 180 artists and architects, coming from 36 countries. Never like this time, the concept of the exhibition seems to be epochal: for 3 months, the humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer. The new invisible borders generated by the COVID-19 are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, re-thinking common spaces, and entire cities.

Could the new “borders” be the solution? We invite artists, architects, and designers to be inspired by this new era, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears that brings humankind to change, to transform, and to evolve our inner world.

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events, is pleased to announce the open call for BORDERS – ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival.

BORDERS Festival, curated by Arch. Luca Curci will be presented in Venice at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and in other prestigious venues between July 23 and November 29, 2020.

Deadline for applications is July 01, 2020 (11.59 PM of your local time)

Artists, photographers, video makers, and performers are invited to submit their works. To take part in the selection, send your works’ submissions with a CV/biography, some still images (for video-art), links of videos/films/performances and pictures via e-mail to director@itsliquid.com

 

Call for artists - BORDERS Festival, Venice July-Nov 2020

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the man 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 man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities and exchange possibilities, instead of being social barriers.

BORDERS Festival consists of 3 main events:

– BODIES+CITIES SKIN from July 23 to August 21, 2020

– FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES from September 03 to October 02, 2020

– FUTURE LANDSCAPES, from October 15 to November 29, 2020

Deadline for applications is July 01, 2020 (11.59 PM of your local time). Click here to apply.
