MIXED BORDERS & HYBRID IDENTITIES – International Art Exhibition of Photography, Video Art, Computer Graphics, Painting, Architecture, Installation, Sculpture and Performing Art held in Riccione (Italy) during the “Nightshow“, Annual Exhibition of the Night-related Industries and Technologies (www.nightshow-riccione.com).

date: April 26-27-28, 2013

The deadline for applications is April 07, 2013

The selection will be based on the main concept of the Hybridization and mixing of Identities and borders and it is divided into two sections: MIXED BORDERS and HYBRID IDENTITIES. Nowadays, urban environments, people, rules and limits are no more distinct realities, but they constantly modify and get mixed together, generating new connections and hybrid results. Ethic, social, sexual and religious borders get confused and we feel free to overcome and change all the limits, creating and showing a new type of identity: a crossbreed of characters inserts into a metropolis in which you can find everything you need and become everything you desire.

The exhibition concept is strictly connected to the “Nightshow” event, since the night is the perfect moment in which all these changes get revealed. During the night the borders vibrate and identities start to get confused.

The Nightshow is an extraordinary experience which will involve thousands of exhibitors, artists and viewers. During the exhibition there will be music events, conferences, showcases, workshops, art shows and many more. More than 100 artists from all over the world will perform music, 3D video mapping projects around the city and partners such as Redbull, Samsung, Yamaha. The event will be at the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th floor of the Palazzo dei Congressi of Riccione, where the fourth and fifth floors will be dedicated to video art, music, installations and art exhibitions.

International ArtExpo will present artists from all over the world in two main venues: Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Riccione in which we will show video art projects divided into two floors (more than 400 square metres of exhibition space), and the Palazzo dei Congressi (Riccione) in which we will exhibit photographic works, performances, installations and sculptures, paintings, architecture projects and computer graphic works. Additionally three places for the 3D video mapping in the city; strategic video projection points in all the Palazzo dei Congressi, with high visibility; dedicated rooms for solo and collective projects and exhibitions.

Call for Artists: Liquid Identities – Venice (Italy) – September 28-29-30, 2012

International ArtExpo is selecting all interesting video/short.films and photo works to include in the next 2012 Exhibition:

Liquid Identities – International Videoart Festival and Photo Exhibition at Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora, Venice (September 28-29-30, 2012)

organizer: International ArtExpo (www.lucacurci.com/artexpo)
curators: Luca Curci
project coordinator: Biagio Ciraldo
press office: It’s LIQUID Group (www.itsliquid.com)

opening: September 28, 2012 at 6pm at Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora, Castello 3811/B – Campo della Bragora, Venice – Italy

exhibition & screening places: Scoletta di San Giovanni Battista e del SS. Sacramento in Bragora
dates: September 28-29-30, 2012

The deadline for applications is September 10, 2012.

The selections will be based on the main concept of “Liquid Identities” based on fluidity, motion, changing networks and cities transformations. In contemporary society boundaries are getting more and more fleeting, and also the identity; what makes every person or place a recognizable entity, turns out fluid, multiple, making the cultural, religious, ethnic borders changeable too. This change, this mutation has allowed to cross the inside of the identities creating new possible crossings, new blends. And it’s just this “contemporaneity” that makes our civilization conceived as subjected to a process of continuous evolution and cultural hybridization. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity. This project is about temporary roles in changing rules, thinking about liquid borders in new evolving worlds.

The number of works with which you can participate is unlimited.
All video works must be on DVD (PAL or NTSC), no matter what the original source medium. The maximum length of videos should be 10 minutes.
All photo works on every kind of support are accepted. The maximum dimensions allowed per each image are 100 cm per side.

Send your works submissions with a CV/biography, videography and some still images (only for videoartists) and some samples of photo works (only for artists) via email to lucacurci@lucacurci.com or via mail to:
