Eligibility:

ITSLIQUID GROUP, in collaboration with Venice Events and Ca’ Zanardi, is selecting all interesting photo, painting, video art, installation/sculpture and performance art works to include in the next exhibition THE BODY LANGUAGE – ITSLIQUID International Art Exhibition 2020 that will be held in Venice during the period of Venice Carnival 2020, at the art gallery THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, from February 13, 2020 to March 12, 2020 and at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi from February 14, 2020 to March 12, 2020.

THE BODY LANGUAGE analyzes the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness.

The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.

The exhibition will be presented during the period of Venice Carnival 2020 and we invite artists to be inspired by the magical power of Venetian costumes, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears through rituals that brings human kind to change, to transform and to evolve their inner world.

Deadline for applications is January 09, 2020 (11.59 PM of your local time)

RIOTS

HERE WE ARE

 

An atmosphere of blissful calm prevails over Share Festival, in the fifteenth consecutive year of our technology-art fair. The cruel word “Crisis” has become old-fashioned here in Italy, a nation whose government is  the most stable of all the G-7 major powers.
Our city has recently signed a ten-point Manifesto of Non-Hostile Communications, which recommends wise principles of civilized discourse online (and is highly suited for public announcements like this one).  The City of Turin has recently celebrated its first “Festival of Technology,” where our erudite populace responded with polite appreciation to the marvels of science. This huge, crowd-pleasing tech festival appeared back-to-back with Turin’s vast, legendary “Artissima” art fair, so that our city can now justly boast of its learned patronage of every form of modern art, and modern research, too!
Here at Share Festival of Piemonte, the radical, cutting-edge art forms that we have long championed: tactical media, net.art, device art, code art, interactive installations and augmented experiences — are being legitimized, refined and civilized.   All of our avant-garde artistic eccentricities are fast becoming twenty-first century mainstream lifestyles. Our Share Festival jury for the year 2020 is the wisest and best-briefed that we have ever assembled, for it includes the doyenne of the Piedmontese art scene, the globally-famed art collector and cultural activist, Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. She is ShareFestival’s favorite Knight of Arts and Letters. We are really looking forward to a close discussion of your artistic entries this year. Frankly, our festival has never seen such a halcyon situation.  We are the picture of smart-urban civility.
La vita é bella!

*******************************************

 

However… here, below the dividing-line…. what about all those other cities, here at the turn of the decade?    Crowds waves angry banner, subways are flaming, airports are besieged, lasers flare in the tear-gas clouds under the drones — urban mayhem smolders over every horizon!   Leaderless crowds cry out their need to take back a control that seems entirely illusory; polarized parliaments howl abuse and demand impeachments, blockades and barricades abound to stop overcrowded caravans where all the wheels have fallen off….  Tech unicorns fall flaming in disgrace, and even the ultra-rich weep and tremble in public venues; social lynch-mobs abound, while enlightened scientists flee the trolls; upheavals are met with ominous silence as the Internet’s plug is pulled over vast, stricken provinces.  The tenuous fabric of civilization is shredded as law enforcement agents randomly batter the passers-by, and frenzied outbursts of reckless passion and raw discontent shatter the one-way mirror of the status quo. Surveillance is redoubled as the surveilled can’t be bothered to behave; to “befriend” is an act of covert emnity, while to
“like” is passe’. A riot is not a revolution or a reform, it’s a burst of frenzy that concludes in melancholy astonishment. And yet: here we are.  Such is the social condition.  It could be anywhere, it could be anybody. 

What can we make of this? What’s to become of us?

The works nominated for the prize must comply with the theme. An International Jury will select 6 candidates for the award, who will be invited to take part in the exhibition, which will take place in Turin in May 2020. By the end of February 2020 the finalists will be announced.

HOME Call for Exhibition

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design

Group Exhibition in Rome city. July 2020

This call intends to collect works that address the theme of "home", from its symbolic and conceptual conception to the exposition of an experience. "Home" as a concept linked to a safe and familiar environment, a refuge for our person, a social clothing that contains the warmth and energy of those who live there (q. M. McLuhan), or again, an environment that reflects our being in the world and the fluid changes of life, but also a place where we often find traces of the past, where emotional involvement is implicit in the experience we have in it.

CONNEXION FESTIVAL - 1ST EDITION

Opening, December 2019 – in Rome and broadcasted worldwide!

Mattatoio, Rome, Italy
 

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS
“Connexion Festival” is a cultural, educational, and collaborative project curated by the students of the Master in Arts and Culture Management of the Rome Business School (RBS). It proposes a unique exhibition and curatorial experience, featuring students based in more than 100 countries worldwide. This blended managerial and curatorial approach is the very core of Connexion Festival, whose objective is to become a yearly education appointment for international students, artists, and viewers to focus on current events characterizing our history: in Rome, as will be the physical exhibition, and simultaneously across the globe, like the net of international students reached virtually. 
 
This approach echoes the famous chaos theory of the ‘Butterfly Effect’ that celebrates the importance of little happenings in a given part of the world, to then trigger a wider phenomenon reverberating on a global scale.
 
This year’s theme will be the environment, analyzed from three sub-topics that are natural, spiritual, and virtual (environments). Artists applying to the call should either select a work from their portfolio and verbalize why and how it refers to one of three sub-topics; or propose an ad hoc project for the edition (see the ‘Technical List’ below for more details). Applicants should moreover send their CV and/or artistic portfolio to connexionfestival@gmail.com by November 7th. International artists of any media, age, sex can apply. Received applications will be evaluated in consideration of the project’s formal qualities, conceptual elaboration, link to the edition’s theme, and artist’s portfolio. All selected applicants will be informed via mail on November 20th and will have time to confirm their seat by November 24th. After that term, the Curation team may nominate other candidates.
 
Selected artists will have full assistance throughout the exhibition installation process; a fully-documented curated catalogue (English) with pictures of the exhibition and of the works; social-media (and not only) coverage. 
 
Travel expenses, costs of material, transportation and accommodation are in charge on the artists.
