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:
